HTC to hire 10,000 in 5 years, opens 4th centre

Tags: News
IT and BPO services provider HTC Global Services said on Tuesday that it would open its fourth delivery centre in India at Vandalur near Chennai. Apart from the organic expansion plans for which the company is investing close to Rs 150 crore, it is also looking for acquisitions.

The new centre, which would be operational from August, will have capacity to house about 4,500 employees. Headquartered at Michigan in the US, HTC has about 6,500 professionals working across two facilities in Chennai, one in Hyderabad and two in Malaysia. It plans to hire about 10,000 staff over the next three-five years.

“We were established in 1990 and over the last 24 years, we have been cautious about expansion. So far, we have grown only organically. HTC has now reached an inflection point where it is looking at robust organic and inorganic growth,” said Chary Mudu­m­by, HTC executive vice president.

HTC is in advanced talks for acquisitions in the healthcare, mobility and BPO spaces in the US and India. HTC’s specialisations in business intelligence and analytics are giving it the confidence to expect higher future growth.

Madhava Reddy, HTC president and CEO, said, “To expand and provide our value-added services to clients, we are investing in talented workforce and state of the art infrastructure.”
