Tallinn, Estonia, Noida, India – 3rd December 2015 – HCL Technologies (HCL), a global IT services provider, announced that the President of Estonia, Honorable Toomas Hendrik Ilves, today inaugurated HCL’s nearshore centre in Tallinn. This marks the expansion of HCL’s operations in the Baltics region. Located in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, by the Gulf of Finland, the centre aims to accommodate 100 seats in the next year which will cater to its marquee customers across Continental Europe. The centre will become a key hub in HCL’s global delivery network and will provide cutting-edge transformational IT services by leveraging its global best practices.
HCL strategically chose Tallinn to expand its footprint in the Baltics as the region offers a highlyskilled talent pool to help the company meet current and future business needs. The geographic location of Tallinn on the shore of the Baltic Sea, in close proximity to Finland and Sweden as well as the rest of the Nordic countries allows convenient access all across Northern Europe and Benelux.
Viljar Lubi, Ambassador of Estonia to India “Although Sanskrit was taught at the University of Tartu already back in the 19th century Java, Phyton is the new lingua franca in India-Estonia relationship. I am very happy that HCL is opening its centre in Tallinn. I am absolutely convinced that our collaboration in IT has by far the strongest spillover effect in enhancing the relationship between our two countries. HCL is warmly welcomed in our family.”
Rahul Singh, President, Financial Services, HCL Technologies said, “We believe in making investments in strategic locations like Tallinn, where high quality IT talent will create stronger service delivery for our existing customers.
