Three cities battle for IBM service center - In Poland

wbj.pl/article-55259-three-cities-battle-for-ibm-service-center.html

"Katowice, Poznań and £ódz are competing as the potential location for a new IBM service center, Puls Biznesu reports. The new center would employ 1,000 people.

No city representative wished to confirm their participation in the competition.

Next week, IBM will shortlist two cities, where it will send delegations. IBM visited Szczecin and Lublin as well, but the cities fell out of the running, allegedly due to poor communication. Rzeszów was seen as a decent candidate, but only for a smaller center.

IBM employs 2,000 people in its Wrocław center. Last year, the company received a government grant of zł.31.5 million and a zł.85 million EU grant for the development of a new center, where it could hire between 1,600-3,000 people, including as many as 2,850 with higher education."


Who do you think will get it? Rzeszow :) !!!

This is outrageous. Money doesn't fall from the sky. They took it from taxpayers to give it to a "choosen" corporation. Those support centers are the IT equivalent of a sweet shop - nothing innovative about it, just what has been done by those corporations in India for some time.

not rzeszow- the logistic and transportation factor is too important. my bet would be Lodz.
