Business Service Centres

Portugal is today one of Europe’s fastest growing countries in Business Services, whether through Shared Services Centres, Competence Centres or Business Process Outsourcing, and Santa Maria da Feira has excellent conditions for hosting units of the big multinationals.

This sector has a strong presence of foreign investment, and is growing rapidly, generating qualified employment and wealth for the economy and exporting a large part of the services it operates, and it has the potential to continue to grow, being a strategic investment in the economic development of the municipality.

Currently, our Business Services crisscross the fields of management consulting, accounting, legal services, engineering, architecture, information technology and design with the more operational aspects of a business, such as logistics, recruitment and employment and infrastructure leasing.

Santa Maria da Feira has a highly competitive environment regarding the main attractiveness factors for the location of Business Service Centres.

Namely the availability of qualified human resources (technical qualifications and knowledge of foreign languages and competence in new technologies), a favourable business environment and quality infrastructure: easy road access and proximity to the Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport and the ports of Leixões and Aveiro; in terms of ICT and offer of buildings with good location and competitive costs, as well as a region that provides quality of life.

A good example of this competitiveness is the decision of a French group to install its Global Business Services (GBS) in Santa Maria da Feira,  an operations centre that includes all the most important support functions such as finance, purchases and sales.
