Efficio celebrates 15 years with US office launch

26 Oct 2015
LONDON – Efficio, the procurement experts, today announced the opening of a permanent new US office based at the Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.

Efficio’s co-founder and COO Alex Klein will head up the local team. Opened in Efficio’s fifteenth year, the office is a major part of the company’s international expansion plans, and complements their European offices in Dusseldorf, Geneva, Paris, Copenhagen and London.

We are currently working on two major programmes in the US for a large manufacturing company and a global logistics firm, as well as a significant project for an insurance company in Canada. These engagements demonstrate our strong local credentials and provide an ideal launch pad for our expansion plans into the US. The North American market is mature, with increasing demand for strategic sourcing and procurement transformation as well as an established Private Equity industry. As this sector represents close to half of our clients, we will be leveraging our strong relationships to grow our presence in the US. The breadth and depth of our offering and credentials are second-to-none, and we are confident that we can quickly gain market share".

Alex Klein COO Efficio

Since we opened our doors in 2000, the global economy and the challenges our clients face have evolved dramatically, and our business has adapted to those challenges. Over the past year we have undergone our own evolution, shifting our focus to a long-term partnering approach with clients to deliver sustained procurement transformation underpinned by tailored technology solutions. We are excited to bring our expertise to a new US client base, and having a permanent base in New York will enable us to build on our strong track record of success in Europe over the past fifteen years. In addition to the Private Equity industry, other focus sectors in the North American market will include financial services, utilities, infrastructure and manufacturing where we have had a number of recent successes.

Jens Pedersen CEO Efficio
