Roche expands business presence in Riga

Mar 24, 2023

On March 24, Roche announced the launch of a new branch of its Roche Services & Solutions (RSS) EMEA in Riga and plans to employ more than 200 specialists over four to five years. The company's decision to open an RSS office in Riga, in addition to its existing Pharma and Diagnostics Teams, shows the company’s commitment to making substantial investments in Latvia.

After a thorough evaluation of several potential locations, Riga was chosen due to its excellent infrastructure and the high educational standards of its many universities.

Rauls Velins, General Manager of Roche Latvija emphasizes: "We are very proud that Roche has valued Latvia and will have an opportunity to access and develop highly qualified Latvian talents. I want to thank Roche team, as a result of whose work not only our company has a high reputation, but we have also gained global recognition for our work. We invite other companies to follow our example."

RSS is Roche’s global business services organization with main sites in Budapest (Hungary), San José (Costa Rica) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), offering customer-centric solutions to its partners within Roche in more than 150 countries.
