Amsterdam: an easy choice
Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC – a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Capital Corporation – is a leading financial services company that boasts over 1 million customers, 1,200 employees and over 4 billion euros’ worth of assets. For over 30 years, the business has provided finance solutions for a number of customers across Europe, including consumers, SMEs, retailers and more.
Needless to say, the company needs a strong presence in mainland Europe to cater to the needs of these customers, which is one of the reasons they set up the new Amsterdam office earlier this month – their second one in the Netherlands. The new location supports the Hitachi and Mitsubishi group companies located in or around the area.
A launchpad for further European Growth
The new office will help the company achieve the goal of further expanding into Europe, by offering assistance to key Europe-based vendors. Naturally, it will also supplement the sales division of Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe.
“Over the last twelve months we have experienced significant growth in our European business, more than doubling the size year on year. The continent remains an important area for Hitachi Capital UK, and we will continue to look for further opportunities to grow our European footprint, with the Netherlands providing a strong base for further expansion,” said Robert Gordon, Hitachi Capital UK’s CEO.Source: NFIA, September 2017
