Billennium, a Polish company that delivers IT services and solutions for businesses, on August 1st, opened its first delivery centre and HQ office in Mississauga, Ontario. After Germany, India and Malaysia, this is the company’s fourth international expansion, and the company is seeking to hire 150-200 specialists to scale its Toronto Region operations.
TORONTO, ON – September 27, 2021: The establishment of Billennium’s first headquarters in North America and the decision to bring this expansion to Canada marks a significant milestone in the company’s growth. With the goal of strengthening business relationships and developing stronger support for the company’s current customer base, Billennium’s Canadian presence provides the framework for its IT specialists to respond to their customers’ needs quickly and efficiently.
Thus far, projects for this geographical region have been implemented remotely by over 100 specialists located in Poland and India. Now, the team will include over 15 new experts, primarily in the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning and computerized systems validation. These experts will work in the newly established headquarters in Mississauga, a burgeoning city in the Toronto Region in Ontario. Entering this market is part of the company’s international development strategy, which has already seen the successful launch of offices in Germany, India, Malaysia and seven cities in Poland.
“Billennium has been present in foreign markets for many years. Our know-how and experience in implementing projects in a distributed model allow us to successfully implement projects remotely. Thanks to our ‘follow-the-sun’ approach, our experts are available 24/7/365. Sometimes, however, the specificity of projects requires a local presence in a given market and increased support from our specialists. With this new Canadian branch, we can tighten cooperation with clients and show greater commitment to their needs. One of our key clients is also developing its R&D centre in Canada, showcasing the need for our extensive technological competences in this region,” says Piotr Chmielowski, General Manager of Billennium Canada.
Throughout the process, Billennium worked closely with Toronto Global, a team of experienced advisors assisting international businesses to expand into the Toronto Region, and the City of Mississauga’s Economic Development Office. Toronto Global also collaborated with the Polish Investment & Trade Agency in Toronto, a public consultancy supporting international development of Polish businesses, to provide Billennium with the tools and resources to assist in a seamless expansion process.
“Our government is thrilled that Billennium has chosen to expand into Ontario for its Canadian headquarters, and we want to congratulate them on this milestone,” said Vic Fedeli, Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. “Ontario’s deep talent pool, strong postsecondary institutions, vibrant innovation and tech ecosystem and competitive business costs make our province an ideal place for investment. We thank Billennium for investing in Ontario’s post-pandemic economic recovery, creating high-value jobs, and contributing to our globally recognized technology sector.”
“With one of the most highly skilled and diverse workforces in the world, Mississauga is a top destination for business and talent,” said Mississauga Mayor, Bonnie Crombie. “Billennium’s investment is a testament to Mississauga’s strong reputation as an innovation hub and our attractiveness to international companies. I’m delighted to welcome Billennium to Mississauga’s growing and innovative business community.”
IT for people. People for IT.
The company expects its delivery centre in Mississauga to continue on the same growth trajectory as its India and Malaysia branches, which currently employ nearly 200 specialists. In addition to serving existing customers, the company also plans to acquire new projects in North America and to expand its area of operation to the west coast of Canada.
