Perot Systems (NYSE: PER), a leading US-based global IT services provider, today announced the expansion of its global infrastructure services (IS) operations with the launch of a new technology center in Guadalajara, Mexico.
At a press conference in Guadalajara, the company said the new facility will serve as a key global center for delivery of a wide range of Perot Systems' infrastructure services, including service desk support, engineering, and Tier I, II and III level services, directly to its customers around the world.
Perot Systems is currently recruiting qualified technology candidates from the Guadalajara area and throughout Mexico to staff the new facility.
"This is an exciting day for Perot Systems and the information technology industry in Mexico," said Mike McClaskey, Perot Systems vice president, CIO and head of the company's global infrastructure solutions organization. "The Perot Systems Guadalajara center is an important expansion of our core infrastructure solutions business and gives us a critical additional services delivery platform in our global system. We are pleased to extend our operations into Guadalajara, and the state of Jalisco, rich in educational resources, technology career talent and experience."
The new Perot Systems facility will be located on multiple floors of the Guadalajara World Trade Business Center, and will include up to 270 seats. The company reports that the project is on a fast track, with one floor scheduled for completion next month and the additional floors to be occupied in January and February.
Sergio Carrera, director general for Interior Trade and Digital Economy at the Mexican Department of the Economy said, "We welcome Perot Systems Corporation, a global technology leader, to Mexico and are proud to support its success with our outstanding technology talent pool from Guadalajara and the Mexico region."
Carrera added that, "We feel that Perot Systems will feel right at home with our flourishing technology industry and look forward to providing them with highly qualified technology professionals to support their infrastructure solutions capabilities."
Perot Systems has already begun operations in Guadalajara, with recruiting, hiring and training occurring at a rapid pace. The new associates are housed in temporary quarters in the Guadalajara business center, and will move to the permanent floors upon their completion. Approximately 150 qualified IS professionals are expected to be hired by the company by the end of the year.
"Our Guadalajara center is an extension of and closely aligned with our global IS operations spanning North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific," McClaskey said. "Our potential employees in Mexico who are looking for a meaningful career opportunity should know that this center is key to Perot Systems' direct delivery of services to our global clients and closely linked to our other world-class delivery centers in the US, India, and Europe. We are reaching out to find the best infrastructure services professionals in Mexico and invite those interested to attend our recruiting events."
