Indian firm offshores to Belfast

Euro HQ should bring 85 development jobs

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Indian systems integrator and software developer L&T Infotech is opening its European headquarters in Belfast which will eventually employ 85 people.

Sunip Banerjee, Chief Executive of L & T Infotech, said he hoped the centre could expand even further than the 85 posts currently planned. He said the company was impressed by the availability of engineering and science graduates from local universities.

Banerjee told the Beeb the centre was aiming for high-end work especially for financial services and petroleum markets. But the centre will be involved in development of all L&T's products.

He said there were three main reasons for the move. The availability of high-quality talent and low attrition rates were important, as was Belfast's excellent infrastructure.

The HQ will be in the Northern Ireland Science Park and is being supported by Invest Northern Ireland. ®
