MAHLE SSC (Shared Services Center) Wroclaw

MAHLE Shared Services Poland Sp. z o.o. has been operating in Wroclaw for 5 years. In the Nicolas Business Center office building at Sw. Mikolaja Street, MAHLE has a Shared Services Center (SSC), which provides the company with support mainly for financial and IT processes, but not only.

It also provides the Global Service Desk service for all the company's branches.

  • The controlling center provides support for the headquarters in Stuttgart and supports production plants in Europe.
  • Since this year also Logistics and R&D departments have been located in the Wrocław center.
The 5-year MAHLE history in Wroclaw can be briefly summarized by the company representatives: - We have used that time effectively, we have extended the area and range of activities and increased employment.
- Looking at the development dynamics of our Wroclaw-based company and its current shape in relation to the original plans, we can boldly admit that opening the SSC in Wroclaw was the right decision and a successful investment by MAHLE

- says Sabina Stachurek, Human Resources Director at MAHLE, responsible for Poland and Serbia.

MAHLE Shared Services Poland

Company representatives emphasize that MAHLE Shared Services Poland has already achieved a lot during the 5 years of its operations, but there are still many plans to be implemented. The Financial Division is gradually taking over the operation of plants in other European countries, while IT is already operating globally, wherever MAHLE facilities are located.

- Our plants operate in three shifts 24 hours a day, 5 and sometimes 7 days a week. For this reason, we must ensure that critical services are available around the clock. In addition to us, MAHLE has two other service centers, so we can work in a "follow the sun" arrangement. When our shift ends, our colleagues from Mexico take over, followed by others in India

- says Tomasz Głuch, IT Director, MAHLE Shared Services Poland.

- MAHLE Shared Services Poland attracts primarily the possibility of development and active participation in building and modeling processes. Our strength is also the great atmosphere created by our employees. The company is open to the realization of charitable, sports or integration ideas, coming directly from the employees, and they appreciate it. This is evidenced, among others, by last year's Great Place To Work title awarded on the basis of subjective opinions expressed by employees in anonymous surveys

- Sabina Stachurek emphasizes.

MAHLE Shared Services Poland in Wroclaw: plans for the future

When asked about the future of MAHLE in Wroclaw, Sabina Stachurek says that there is no ready answer.

- Taking into account the progress and pace of market changes, it is difficult to predict what technological and economic conditions we will operate in the future. When our company started 5 years ago, paper invoices were in common use. Now there are no paper invoices, we settle accounts through systems developed for our needs, to minimize the amount of paper used and reduce manual labor. The dynamics of change is enormous - I work in Wroclaw, and I'm responsible for HR departments all over Poland and Serbia. Was it ever possible? Of course we have plans for development, we want to increase employment by another 150 people, perhaps this year, but the market will verify everything

- adds Sabina Stachurek.

Tomasz Gluch: - At the moment we are focusing globally on the digital transformation of MAHLE. We are in line with the objective and strategy of our concern, but we are not able to predict what the future of the global economy will be. Covid-19 surprised everyone, so we must always be ready for new challenges.
