Relax Gaming prepares for massive expansion after landmark commercial year. The firm is in the process of operating seven new offices over the next 12 months to accommodate its rapidly increasing workforce as the company continues on its forecasted growth trajectory.
After securing a B2B gaming licence from the Licensing Authority, the supplier has recently opened an office in Gibraltar and will soon be establishing a base in Stockholm to complement its Malmö office and further cement its position in the Swedish market. Capacity is also being expanded through the current headquarters in Vaasa, Helsinki, Malmo, Malta and Tallinn, the latter of which will have room for about 100 employees and is expected to open next summer.
This month, Relax will move into the new Malta HQ, with the team there having expanded by 30 percent since January, due to the expansion of the partner, company, and operational teams. Relax has managed to recruit new team members, having recruited 37 workers across all offices since March, despite being a difficult year for the industry and aware of the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The expansion follows a year of substantial commercial success, with the supplier securing major deals with the industry’s biggest brands. In the last six months alone, it has partnered with Paf, Veikkaus, Paddy Power Betfair, GVC and Svenska Spel. Relax has long promoted an ethos to hire where the talent is and a willingness to open offices to facilitate this standpoint.
Tommi Maijala, Relax Gaming CEO, said “It’s been an incredible year for Relax Gaming with significant commercial achievements across the business, none of which would have been possible without the hard work, passion and talent of our entire team. People are our biggest asset and when good people are let go elsewhere, we make it a point to see if they can find a home at Relax and help us achieve our goals faster.
“The fact that we’ve continued to hire throughout this challenging time demonstrates the health of our business and is a testament to our technical excellence, commercial appeal and our constant strive for progress.
“As we reach another milestone in our company history, I want to say thank you again to all of Relax’s employees and I look forward to expanding the team with more fantastic individuals.”
