Aldi sets up global IT services centre in Debrecen

German discount chain Aldi has set up a global IT services centre in Debrecen, in eastern Hungary, the minister of foreign affairs and trade said on Monday.

The 1.2 billion forint (EUR 3.1m) centre, which was supported by a 120 million forint government grant, will create 50 advanced-skill jobs, Peter Szijjarto said at the inauguration of the new office of Aldi International IT Services, according to a ministry statement.

The centre will also be key to Aldi’s global activities, the minister said, noting that it will provide IT services to the discount chain’s entire global network of more than 200,000 employees, over 7,000 stores and 80 logistics centres.
