Infosys expands footprint in Eastern Europe, will tap local talent

US is not the only country where IT can thrive. Infosys, which wants to strengthen its engineering footprint across the globe, has opened its first office and delivery centre in Croatia. 

The facility in Karlovac, Croatia is the latest location across 16 regions in Europe which Infosys has opened as part of its ongoing commitment to client servicing and local job creation. 

This step is in line with the company’s strategy to establish global competence centres, offering best talent in the market and making the talent available to customers globally. In a release by Infosys, ‘this delivery centre also marks our expansion into Eastern Europe’s established heavy engineering sector.’ The new facility will meet near-shoring requirements, support engineering clients worldwide, as well as offer R&D services. 

Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Secretary of State, Mario Antoni, emphasised how Infosys’ strategy to enhance its footprint in the region's established engineering sector is a testament to the local expertise, and by bringing this to organisations across the globe, Infosys DC will also contribute to the growth of research and development activities in Croatia.

Ravi Kumar S, President and Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Infosys said, “As part of our strategy to increase geo capabilities, the Karlovac delivery center will deliver value to our global clients, specifically in the Nordics. The focus will be on consolidating consulting, IT and engineering skills in the areas of power generation, design and development of large gas and steam turbines, digital solutions for service and maintenance, and development of advanced engineering software tools. As we continue to invest in developing global competency centers, tapping local talent and scaling those centers, we will be looking to partner with local academic institutions, co-innovate with clients and nurture a partner ecosystem to help develop skilled workforce that will deliver next-generation services.”
