Pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline (Glaxo) has opened a global information technology (IT) centre in Petaling Jaya, near Kuala Lumpur, to support its operations worldwide, a local business paper reported.

The new centre would work closely with another centre in Poznan, Poland, to support IT servers, networks and applications for offices, research and development as well as manufacturing sites in 85 countries, according to the report in the StarBiz.

It will also operate on a “follow the sun” model, with local staff in the right time zones.

Chief information officer Bill Louv told a media briefing Tuesday that the centre was part of the company’s “strategic priority to grow a diversified, global business”.

The opening of the centre was witnessed by Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai. “We recognise where Glaxo’s business is growing rapidly,” Louv said, adding that the company had so far invested over 11 million ringgit in the new centre and employed 130 people. (1$=3.5 ringgit)

He said it planned to invest another 60 million ringgit in the centre over the next two years.
