Mindtree sets up new delivery centre in US

Our Bureau New Delhi | Updated on March 13, 2018 Published on April 29, 2014

Mid-size IT exporter Mindtree has opened a second development centre in the US.

This development centre is at Redmond in Washington State, which is home to tech majors like Microsoft and others. The Redmond centre is a 125 seater, covers 13,000 square feet and is located close to the Microsoft campus, which happens to be a key customer of Mindtree.

Kamran Ozair, Executive Vice-President and Head of Redmond USDC, Mindtree said that the presence of Microsoft, one of its largest clients, makes Redmond a strategic location for the Bangalore-based exporter.

Further, this development centre will focus on technologies such as mobility solutions, cloud computing, IT infrastructure management and software testing services, according to company officials.

This development centre is the second one after its Florida centre, which was launched in 2012. Companies such as Mindtree, TCS and Infosys are increasingly opening centres in the US due to factors such as close proximity to its clients and access to local talent.

Also, clients are asking for services in the same time zones and this is forcing Indian companies to set up development centres so that they can service their clients at the same time that they are working, according to industry watchers.

According to Scott Staples, President Americas at Mindtree, there is an increasing demand from its clients to provide options from a combination of onsite, offshore, or onshore locations.

Then there is also the issue of access to talent from some of the well-known engineering colleges such as Washington State University and University of Washington.
