Aldi Expands IT Service Center in Hungary

September 3, 2019

Retail chain ALDI will expand the competence and headcount of its Information Technology service center in Pécs, southern Hungary, the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA) says. The headcount of the center is set to nearly double. The center supports the IT system operations of 3,800 European ALDI stores and 55 logistics centers.

ALDI opened its first store in Hungary in 2008 and currently has 140 units employing 3,300 people countrywide.

The ALDI SÜD company group established an IT department at its Logistics Center in Biatorbágy (just SW of Budapest) in 2013, providing first-level IT support, including IT equipment and applications, to 3,300 European stores in the first year. Given that results exceeded expectations and in light of the increasing workload, a new IT unit - organized under an independent company called ALDI International IT Services Ltd.- was set up in Pécs in 2018.

The eponymous Albrecht family, which is still the owner of ALDI, opened their first store in 1912 and implemented a successful food discount store philosophy by 1962. The name ALDI (ALbrecht DIscount) was also created the same year.
