The massive investment in Texas is part of the company’s global strategy to drive digital transformation of American businesses.
Last May, Infosys had recently announced to recruit 10,000 American workers by end of 2020 and till date, the IT Giant has employed 6,200 American workers.
The announcement was made hours after Amazon officially passed on Dallas for a massive headquarters expansion expected to create 25,000 new jobs each in New York City and northern Virginia and 5,000 new jobs in Nashville.
IT giant Infosys has announced that it will soon open a new technology hub with $12.3 million capital investment at Richardson in the US state of Texas and employ 500 American techies by 2020.
The hub at Texas would focus on telecommunications, retail, and banking sectors, said the company statement.
Infosys has already opened similar hubs in Indianapolis and Raleigh, N.C., and others are planned for Phoenix and Hartford, Conn. The company, which employees 200,000 people in 45 countries, previously announced plans for a design hub in Providence, R.I.
“This hub will enhance our ability to serve Texas businesses in the telecommunications, retail, and banking sectors,” Ravi Kumar, President of Infosys said in a statement on Twitter.
The company will hire fresh graduates from Texas universities and colleges and they would benefit from upgrading skills through the company’s training programmer.
“Infosys’ expanded investment in Texas is fantastic news for our state and will provide Texans with the training and skills they need to compete in today’s technology-driven economy,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said.
Last May, the IT behemoth had announced to hire 10,000 American workers by 2019 and till date, the company has only employed 6,200 American workers.
“We are excited to announce the expansion of our presence in Texas, which is another important step in our continued investment in driving digital transformation for American businesses,” Chief Operating Officer Pravin Rao said.
The Indian tech-giant firm has opened two US hubs so far in Indianapolis, Indiana and Raleigh, North Carolina. The company has also announced its plan to expand its operations hubs in Hartford, Connecticut, Phoenix, Arizona and a design and innovation hub in Providence, Rhode Island.
