Legal and financial services company Merrill Technology Services is looking to expand its footprint in India with an eye on tier-II locations. And Coimbatore appears to have been the ideal destination for establishment of its facility

The company has inaugurated its third facility in India at the Tidel Park here by taking up 18000 sq ft of space.

(The other two facilities are at Chennai in the Olympia Technology Park and at VBC Solitaire, T Nagar).

It is looking to hire around 300 non-IT focused candidates with good communication skills during the first year and double the headcount by the end of the second year.

Mr Rick Atterbury, President and Chief Operating Officer, Merrill Corporation, said the expansion was part of its ongoing efforts to serve global clients in North America, Europe and Asia.

The Managing Director, Mr Bhamathi Prakash, said Merrill would look to hire both fresh graduates and experienced personnel from various disciplines. Tier-II destinations are attractive in terms of untapped talent, he added.
