CTS opens 8 million dollar centre in Dallas
Cognizant (CTS) on Thursday opened its newest US regional technology and service delivery centre in Irving, Texas.
The opening follows a November 2017 announcement by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on the company’s plan to invest more than $8 million to expand in Irving and create 1,100 new jobs by 2023.
With its US operations headquarters in College Station, Texas, CTS is a leader in business, digital and technology services. The company currently employs approximately 4,100 people statewide.
The new positions are full-time jobs for high-skilled technology and business professionals. Staff in the new 50,000 sq ft Irving facility will provide a variety of services for its Dallas-area clients in various industries, including insurance, healthcare and retail. The new centre also houses a 10,000 sqft training facility. Pre-employment training programmes offered by the company focus on in-demand skills for digital economy jobs.
Qualified participants will receive instruction, at no cost, in quality engineering, data engineering and software support. CTS expects to train over 1,000 people at the facility over the next 36 months, leading to potential employment opportunities for participants with the firm and other local businesses.
It is exploring additional training initiatives, working with the Texas Workforce Commission, Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas, and the Dallas County Community College District.
The company has invested more than $8 mn on its current expansion in Irving; the company also qualified for a Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant of $2,105,880.
“This investment is further proof of the remarkable momentum of Texas’ economic expansion,” said Governor Abbott. “With the right policies, top-notch workforce and partnerships with great companies like CTS, Texas will continue to grow the economy and create more opportunity for Texans across the state.”
“Texas is home to our US operations headquarters and also many of our clients who recognize the state’s strong talent pool, educational institutions and quality of life,” said Karen McLoughlin, CFO, CTS. “Our latest expansion is the result of Texas’ business-friendly environment, the TEF, and the location of our many other partners in the Irving and Dallas region.”
