Indian IT giant Tech Mahindra opens ‘HQ for North’ in Salford

Categories: Business Services

Tech Mahindra, the $4.7billion Indian owned IT services giant, held a special ceremony to formally open its new ‘headquarters for the North’ in Salford Quays, a move which will create 60 new jobs in Greater Manchester.

Vikram Nair, Tech Mahindra's President for Europe Middle East and Africa said: "The new office here at Laser House, is a massive step forward for Tech Mahindra in the UK and demonstrates our confidence in the UK economy. It will cater primarily to the North of England market, creating skilled tech jobs and providing state of the art digital infrastructure for businesses in the region. In addition, the office will offer an innovation hub to technology start-ups looking to test ideas and concepts. I really look forward to seeing this new office and innovation centre grow, helping local businesses and organisations transform their IT systems. It is a terrific example of how India and the UK can work together sharing excellence in tech expertise and know-how.”

Ashish Pandey, VP and client executive, at Tech Mahindra Salford said:

“Greater Manchester is flourishing and is an ideal location to establish our Northern operations centre. In addition, Manchester is a technology hub and is ranked in the top 20 European digital cities, with an excellent talent pool to draw from, being home to four Universities and 99,000 students. The opening of Tech Mahindra’s office for the North dovetails with Greater Manchester’s investment in tech from Google’s digital garage to Manchester Airport’s new £1billion super terminal.

Mr Pandey said Tech Mahindra has been operating in the UK since 1986 formerly as Mahindra British Telecom.  He said the new Salford office will build on Tech Mahindra’s track record of working in Britain with clients including Vodafone, Nationwide, Yorkshire Building Society, Carphone Warehouse and Virgin Media. Moreover, he said Tech Mahindra will build on its experience of working in the North West, with companies including Salford-based telecom giant TalkTalk.

“We are looking to provide our customers with locally based cutting-edge IT and digital services, collaborating and innovating across sectors including telecom, manufacturing, banking & financial services, media and the public sector, including councils and Universities globally,” he said. “Additionally, we want to partner with local Universities offering internships and graduate jobs. This is a long-term investment and we plan to train local people to help future-proof our operations in the North and UK.”

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “It is fantastic news that Tech Mahindra has chosen Salford as the location for their headquarters for the north of England. They are a leading provider in digital transformation and will complement the growing cluster of digital businesses based at Salford Quays. Their move will also create new jobs and opportunities in the region and we look forward to welcoming them to the city.”
