Gothenburg, Sweden; Noida, India; December 15, 2017 – HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global IT services company, has announced that it is the proud winner of “The Key to the Heart of Gothenburg” award. HCL received this outstanding recognition from Gothenburg City in Sweden, for being one of the most important international businesses established in 2016/2017. This recognition comes after HCL announced significant investments in the region during the year. This includes the launch of its new delivery centre in central Gothenburg, which enables HCL to expand its Global Shared Services and Mainframe capabilities through centres of excellence, providing customers with high-quality, industrialized mainframe, open systems and digital services.

Pankaj Tagra, Senior Vice President and Head of Nordics at HCL Technologies, said “The award highlights the pivotal role that Gothenburg plays in HCL’s growth journey, both in the Nordics and in Europe.  The company’s Gothenburg based operations is a key hub, which supports this growth by enabling us to get closer to many of our customers and prospects.”

In February 2016, HCL acquired Volvo’s external IT business, which is based in Gothenburg; since then, the company has continued to focus on the region by successfully integrating Volvo IT into HCL. Today, HCL is amongst the top IT services vendors in Sweden and in the Nordics.

Erik-Wilhelm Graef Behm, Area & Investment Manager ICT, Business Region Göteborg, said "For the industry in Gothenburg to prosper, it is extremely important that we have the leading innovative suppliers and partners. Therefore, attracting top international companies to Gothenburg is an essential part of how we at Business Region Göteborg can contribute to the region’s development. We are therefore very pleased with HCL’s growing presence in Gothenburg.”

During 2017, HCL’s clients in the Nordics have posted all-time high satisfaction ratings as noted by IDC. This accomplishment is especially impressive in light of recent large client wins, which typically result in complex transitions.  

This prestigious award recognition further strengthens HCL’s presence in Europe, where it has 10,000 people and serves over 200 European clients.
