Country's largest software exporter Tata Consultancy Services on Tuesday said it has set up a software development and delivery center in North America with a capacity of 1,000 seats to cater to the customers there.
The center located in Milford, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, can accommodate up to 1,000 associates, TCS said in a statement.
"Most of them will be locally hired from the region and its universities," the statement added.
"The Cincinnati campus is a strategic investment to create an information technology eco-system in the state together with our customers and local universities. It reflects our long-term commitment to customers in one of our key markets globally," TCS Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director S Ramadorai said.
The company has selected Cincinnati and the Ohio region as it met all its criteria in terms of proximity to customers, strong talent pool, and a significant economic base that includes 10 Fortune 500 Companies, N Chandrasekaran, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director, TCS, said.
TCS has been operating in North America since 1979, when it established its first office in New York City. Currently, it has more than 40 offices throughout North America, delivering real business results to customers spanning the Fortune 1,000 firms.
