System Verification AB, the largest independent quality assurance company in Sweden, has opened a subsidiary in Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina. The aim is to offer the same service quality as today in Sweden, although at a lower price.
System Verification has today offices in Malmö, Gothenburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. So why Sarajevo this time? ”The choice of Sarajevo is a combination of good access to very high IT competence at a comparatively low cost”, says Hamdija Jusufagic (pictured below), CEO of System Verification. ”But there is another reason also, namely the fact that my parents came to Sweden from Bosnia Herzegovina and this is a way for me to give something back to their country by creating jobs here.”
The base for the company´s establishment in Sarajevo is a cooperation with Alfa Laval, who since many years have outsourced their testing activities to System Verification at a value of 45 MSEK over three years. A part of these activities will now be carried out in Sarajevo.
System Verification will only employ own staff in Sarajevo. Edhem Gigovic, a Bosnian himself by birth, who has worked as test manager in the Swedish head office for five years, will move to Sarajevo to become the head of the new office. Four more employees are already on board.
”Our ambition is to offer more customers the same opportunity, which means that we plan to expand our operation with more employees. But we will only use own staff, that is a quality assurance for our customers”, says Hamdija Jusufagic.
The address to the new Sarajevo office is Trg. Solidarnosti
2, 71000 Sarajevo.
System Verification is a member of the Chamber of Commerce Sweden – Southeast Europe.
