Fujitsu has big investment plans for India
After Intel, AMD, Microsoft, and many more international tech giants, it is the turn of another major company Fujitsu to announce their plans to invest in India. Fujitsu is the world’s third largest IT services company and they have potential plans of investing in the region of $22 million in India over the next two years. The aim is to aggressively expand their operations in the Indian market.
Fujitsu plans to establish a 2,000-seat offshore development centre in Hyderabad in addition to an R&D centre in Bangalore and a platform solutions centre in India. The company is originally based in Tokyo and is worth around USD 45 Billion. A senior company executive said in a statement about their plans in India: “The goal is to make India a hub for offshore and software development activity going forward.â€
Fujitsu also in the meanwhile opened up an official unit in Bangalore to strengthen its sales and support operations in the country. The company aims to garner five per cent market share in IT server market in India in two years. They specialize in providing IT consulting services, systems integration, IT infrastructure management and IT solutions, among others.
Choi Chee Kong, Senior Vice-President-Regional, Fujitsu Asia Pvt Ltd declined to comment on the companyâ€™s plan to invest further in India. However, he did say that their two-year investment in China topped $22 million for setting up platform solutions centre and marketing activity in that country, and one can draw a parallel with India from that figure.
