Gémar Hompes 2017

Sofico has established Sofico Services Germany GmbH as a new subsidiary company and is opening an office in Germany expand and improve customer offering.

German customers will receive support by German-based staff, initially based in Munich, which sits within its growth strategy to “establish a local presence in key markets”.

The German expansion follows the opening of a dedicated office in the Netherlands near the town of Utrecht in October 2016, and in Mexico last September. It has plans for more regional offices within the European Union in the near future.

Sofico’s managing director Gémar Hompes (pictured) said: “We are delighted to be opening a dedicated office in Germany via a local subsidiary.

"The establishment of local offices helps us stay close to our customers and helps us in attracting new staff with knowledge of the local market and local languages.

“As a next step, we will intensify our efforts in hiring local staff to establish a full multi-disciplinary team in Germany, with a mix of profiles from project manager to support consultant.

"Following extensive training at our head office in Ghent, this German-based team will provide support to our customers in Germany.

“Future implementation projects in Germany will then be managed by the Sofico Services Germany team with support from staff at our HQ in Belgium.”
