The President of the Republic of Lithuania, Gitanas Nausėda, met with Steve Collis, the President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of AmerisourceBergen during his visit to New York. AmerisourceBergen, the industry leader in provisional health care services, is a US company that has seen significant growth in its Lithuanian branch.
This year, AmerisourceBergen is celebrating its fifth anniversary in Lithuania. Three years ago, the company opened a shared services centre in Lithuania that has over 300 employees today. In addition, the company plans to create more than 400 new jobs in the next few years.
“We are glad that AmerisourceBergen is expanding its operations in Lithuania and employing a large number of people. We ensure an investment environment characterized by security, well-developed infrastructure, stable economic growth, and a rich talent pool,” said President G. Nausėda during the meeting.
AmerisourceBergen is one of the largest publicly traded companies in the US, ranked in the top ten of the Fortune 500 list. The company provides pharmaceutical distribution services and solutions, accelerating product development and delivery.
In 2012, AmerisourceBergen acquired World Courier, a specialized logistics services company that played an essential role in distributing the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine against the COVID-19 virus around the world, including Lithuania.
The AmerisourceBergen Global Services Center in Vilnius is the fastest growing division outside the USA, employing specialists in IT, finance and accounting, personnel management, customer service, quality management and other areas.
“Lithuania has been one of the key points of AmerisourceBergen’s development for some time now – we will continue to follow this strategy. We have no doubt that Lithuania will be able to meet our growing talent needs, and the country’s institutions will continue the cooperation with the businesses,” says Lukas Jankauskas, head of Shared Service Site AmerisourceBergen in Lithuania.
