The announcement of Cerillionâs expansion comes hard on the heels of news that it has been named among Britainâs fastest-growing private technology companies in this yearâs Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 league table.
Cerillionâs chief executive Louis Hall says: âThe main objective of the new facility is to capitalise on the wealth of available local talent and create a diverse skill base, focused initially around product development expertise. We will commence operations building a strong development team, quickly followed by support, managed service and implementation teams. The new Pune office will play a key role enabling us to stay at the cutting edge of new technology, delivering cost-effective, high-quality solutions for customers worldwide.â
Amit McCann, Cerillionâs head of operations in Pune, comments: âWe are very excited about setting up the new solutions centre. Pune has a booming software industry and is currently experiencing explosive growth. Building the Cerillion brand here will help ensure we recruit and retain the most innovative, ambitious and highly-skilled employees to deliver services that meet global standards to our international clients.â
Puneâs Magarpatta City, where Cerillion is based, is the first township in India to be awarded ISO 9001:2000 certification and contains a hi-tech commercial area with six million square feet of infrastructure for IT and IT-enabled industries. Cerillion India will grow to staff levels in excess of 200 by the end of its second year of operation.
