HCL Expands U.S. Footprint with New Global Delivery Center in Frisco
New Facility to Bring Local Jobs to Community; Represents Next Phase in Company’s Aggressive U.S. Expansion to Support Business Growth
Frisco, TX and Noida, India – Feb. 3, 2015 — HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services company, today announced the opening of its newest global delivery center in the U.S. Located at 2401 Internet Boulevard, the Frisco center is being inaugurated on Feb. 3, 2015 by the Honorable Mayor of Frisco, Maher Maso. The opening of the facility will initially bring 300 local jobs to the Frisco community and offers space for an additional future 200 employees.
The Frisco center complements HCL’s U.S. network of global delivery centers, which created more than 1,500 jobs in the U.S. in 2014. It also reinforces HCL’s differentiated, multi-tiered global delivery model comprising onshore, offshore and near-shore capabilities offering measureable business impact, joint innovation and real-time collaboration with clients worldwide.
The new delivery center is optimally located to house some of the company’s best engineers and IT professionals to service the growing number of HCL customers across the country. HCL’s employees in the center will be focused on providing next-generation IT services by leveraging innovative business models, advanced technology skills and best practices from HCL’s global partners. The center will bring added proximity advantage to HCL’s clients in the South Central region such as Dean Foods, Entergy, Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG), EFH, Oncor and other major telecom companies in the Dallas Fort-Worth area among others.
“HCL has earned its distinguished reputation by transforming IT operations through continuous innovation, agility and efficiency,” said Dean Foods CEO Gregg Tanner. “Having a local team in this new center in Frisco further validates HCL’s commitment to its customers in the region and it will help us collectively deliver greater value to our business and our end-customers. We welcome the HCL team to Frisco and look forward to its deeper contributions to the overall community here in Dallas.”
HCL strategically chose Frisco for its new center location as the region offers a highly skilled talent pool to help the company meet current and future business needs. Additionally, several of the top-ranked universities in Texas have developed highly regarded computer science programs, further expanding the availability of local qualified graduates in IT-related fields. As part of its larger U.S. strategy to accelerate technology innovation and provide nearshore capabilities to clients across the country, HCL will make a significant and sustained investment in the Frisco facility. The company's strong technology services portfolio, growing client base and robust system integration capabilities will enable the center to gradually become a Center of Excellence for next-generation system integration services.
“Frisco continues to work hard to be a leader among American cities as a place for corporations to call home and to benefit from a vibrant economy, access to a skilled workforce and centralized location in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area,” said Mayor Maher Maso, City of Frisco. “We are excited to have HCL Technologies, a highly respected global technology leader, join Frisco’s thriving and fast-growing community.”
In celebration of the new facility and bringing jobs to the Frisco community, HCL Technologies will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a networking reception on Feb. 3, 2015 for city officials, clients and partners to learn more about the global delivery center.
“The new global delivery center in Frisco will be a strategic asset for our business and will further accelerate our ongoing rapid growth in the U.S.,” said C. Vijay Kumar, corporate vice president - Infrastructure Services Division at HCL. “The center will bolster our delivery and solution capabilities in the U.S. and enable closer collaboration with our customers and partners in the South Central region. This local presence is essential to HCL’s philosophy of creating lasting customer relationships. We are confident that HCL’s unique ‘Ideapreneurship’ culture will bring additional business value to customers in a wide set of industries.”
