A springboard for growth and diversification
In 2018 INDIZEN started a new strategy with the aim of (i) diversifying its range of services in new markets and (ii) internationalizing the company. This strategy resulted in the agreement between SCALIAN Group and INDIZEN announced today. According to Alberto Gomez, CEO of Indizen “the strategic reasons why Indizen is integrated into the Scalian Group were mainly (i) complementarity of services, (ii) synergism between the companies and (iii) a similar company vision and culture based on solid expertise, confidence in the talent of our people , entrepreneurship and innovation”. In practice the integration means that INDIZEN will have new opportunities to develop collaborative business at all levels, locally in Spain, and in other countries as well as the building of a LATAM platform (South America, Mexico, Portugal…). For employees the integration means professional growth in high added-value business areas and new training and career opportunities.
