U.S. IT and services company CSC is to open a new information technology services delivery center in Tianjin.
The new center, which will be located in the Tianjin Airport Industrial Park and will open in early spring 2009. It will initially house approximately 200 employees. The company anticipates that number will grow to 500 within three years. CSC is currently delivering services from a temporary location in the same area.
The company also plans to construct a data center facility in or near Tianjin to address global demand for technology hosting and managed services within the region. Construction of the data center is scheduled for completion in mid-2010.
The Tianjin center expands CSC' s World Sourcing global delivery capability in Asia and joins an integrated network of more than 50 global delivery centers, including locations in Canada, Chile, the Czech Republic, India, Lithuania, Malaysia, Spain, and Vietnam. The Asia centers provide infrastructure, applications and business process outsourcing services while simultaneously offering clients a variety of language and technology skills.
CSC chairman, president and CEO, Michael W.Laphen, stated that China is an important location for CSC, and they are committed to developing and expanding their capabilities here. He added that they looked to their grand opening early next year and to establishing Tianjin as a fully operational center in their world sourcing services global network.
Services offered from the new facility include applications development and maintenance and service desk. Languages supported by the service desk include Mandarin, English, Korean, and Japanese. Once the data center is complete, CSC will also offer both applications and data hosting.
