Slovenia Business Week no. 48: Slovenian IT Company Opens Brussels Branch

Company representatives said at the opening that they wanted to provide solutions for European institutions and form connections to take part in international projects

SRC.SI, the largest Slovenian company specialising in system integration, opened its branch office in Brussels on Tuesday, 22 November, the first such solo effort by a Slovenian company.

Company representatives said at the opening that they wanted to provide solutions for European institutions and form connections to take part in international projects.

"Our vision of seeing SRC in the heart of Europe has become a reality after 20 years," company CEO Gregor Bencina told the press.

"Our 400 employees in five countries around the world bring competitive advantages to our customers by using information technology," he added.

The opening was also attended by Slovenian MEPs Romana Jordan Cizelj and Alojz Peterle (both EPP). Jordan Cizelj was pleased that "not only the country's politicians, but also Slovenian companies are coming to Brussels."

Peterle added that "Slovenian spirit of entrepreneurship is awaking in Europe...I wish this brave act to be followed by others."

The company, which generated SIT 8bn (EUR 33.4m) in revenues last year, expects to see further growth in revenues this year. The Brussels project would begin gradually, initially employing only one person, SRC.SI said.

Several Slovenian companies are already represented in Brussels through the Slovenian Business and Research Association (SBRA), while others are present through foreign partners.
