2 December 2013 - The Planon Group has strengthened its focus on the German market with the intention of opening a new office in Düsseldorf (Germany). This choice is primarily motivated by the desire to better serve Planon customers in western and northern Germany, with a regional team. Second, this step provides Planon access to the labour market in North Rhine-Westphalia and by doing so enables an extended search for new employees.
Matthias Scharer, General Manager at Planon GmbH: “Over the last years, Planon has shown strong growth, especially in Germany. Because Planon wants to further expand its leading position in the IWMS market, we’re constantly looking for employees who are willing to share their knowledge and experience with us. We see a great potential of IWMS professionals in the Rhine-Ruhr region, which helps us to become the undisputed world leader.”
The Düsseldorf office, which will open early 2014, will house a team of about eight consultants. Karen Winter, Director of Professional Services at Planon GmbH, says: “The new facility will create a win-win situation. Highly qualified professionals in this region now get the opportunity to work for the European market leader, which will benefit both our customers and our organisation.” In addition to this new location in Düsseldorf, Planon GmbH has offices in Frankfurt and Linz (Austria) and is represented through partners in Berlin, Vienna (Austria) and Zurich (Switzerland).
