Infosys Cuts Ribbon On Indianapolis Hub
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indian tech giant Infosys cut the ribbon on it's new hub in Indianapolis this morning.
The technology and innovation hub moved into the OneAmerica Tower in downtown Indy, and is bringing more than 2,500 jobs to the Circle City as part of it's commitment to open facilities across the United States and hire around 10,000 American workers.
“What an honor to celebrate Infosys’ grand opening in Indiana today,” Governor Eric Holcomb said at the ribbon cutting. “Not long ago, Infosys announced its plans to grow and create up to 2,000 high-wage jobs for Hoosiers. Today, the company is not just up and running here in Indiana; it’s taking off."
Infosys President Ravi Kumar says Indy is the ideal location for its new hub with the state's booming tech sector and the Capital City's proximity to colleges and universities like Purdue University in West Lafayette.
Back in August, Purdue and Infosys announced a five-year long partnership involving training for the company's American employees, joint research projects and a physical presence for Infosys on campus.
“This will expand our ability to serve clients’ needs in cutting-edge technologies," said Kumar. "And evolve our local workforce to help our clients in their efforts to digitize and renew their core businesses as well as innovate into new breakthrough areas.”
As part of the company's hiring plan, Infosys is opening hubs all across the country. The biggest being in Indianapolis, Raleigh, and Providence.
