Tech Mahindra Opens Centre in Dublin

12:00 2017

Tech Mahindra, a specialist in digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering, opened a Centre of Excellence in Dublin on Monday. The Centre, to be operational in the first quarter of 2017 will be central to Tech Mahindra’s operations in the country and will focus on emerging technologies such as Robotics and Automation, Business Analytics, Cloud Infrastructure and Digital Services. The new centre is expected to employ around 150 engineers over the next three years.

Tech Mahindra, one of the top five Indian IT services companies, has been serving Irish Customers across segments such as Telecom, Energy & Utilities, BFSI and Pharmaceutical since its inception. Over 700 full time employees currently work for its Irish customers, over 320 of which are located in Ireland, specialising in domains such as IT, networks, consulting and customer care.

“This investment is a testimony of our long-term business commitment in the country and our mission to promote and support local talent leveraging Ireland’s rich skills in science and technology,” said Tech Mahindra CEO C. P. Gurnani. “The opening of the Centre of Excellence at Dublin will not only enable us to better serve customers in Ireland and beyond, it also builds on the strong partnerships we have already established in the region by working with local organizations, academic institutions and the government.”

As a part of a new investment in Ireland, the Dublin CoE will bolster Tech Mahindra’s regional footprint in the country and help the company deliver technology services to clients in Ireland as well as Europe.

“We already have a strong footprint of ICT companies in the Greater Dublin area and we are very keen to expand that by attracting a wider range of specialist IT companies,” Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor said. “Tech Mahindra’s decision to locate its European Centre of Excellence in Ireland, to develop new technologies here and to create 150 high quality jobs, is very good news indeed. We have the IT skills available to enable the company to grow and to embed their operations in Ireland, and their arrival is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer.”

Tech Mahindra opened a 300-seater delivery centre in Waterford in 2015, which currently employs around 220 people that primarily serve two major Irish telecom providers. The new Centre in Dublin will work closely with Tech Mahindra’s existing as well as new clients, partners, Irish Academic institutions and the start-up community to foster technology innovation.

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said: “IDA strongly welcomes this investment by Tech Mahindra as it demonstrates the company’s continued confidence in its Irish operations. The Centre of Excellence will become a key development location within Tech Mahindra’s global network. The investment follows a growing trend from Indian IT Services companies to invest in higher value-adding activities in Ireland. IDA will continue in its efforts to win more business from Indian firms in the coming months.”

One of Tech Mahindra’s biggest clients, eir, Ireland’s largest telecommunications company, will be serviced by the new Centre of Excellence. Eir CEO Richard Moat said, “The Centre of Excellence underlines the growing relationship we have with Tech Mahindra. Our goal is to seamlessly provide new and innovative products and services to our customers and Tech Mahindra assists us in the very competitive Irish telecommunications market.”
