CSC Announces New China Delivery Center
Tianjin Facility to Join Growing List of CSC World Sourcing Services Centers
FALLS CHURCH, Va.- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that it will open a new information technology (IT) services delivery center in Tianjin, China, to better serve existing multinational and local customers and increase CSC’s presence in the region. The announcement was made during a ceremonial event involving CSC Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Michael W. Laphen, local CSC executives and senior Chinese officials at the Tianjin Guest House.
The new center, which will be located in the Tianjin Airport Industrial Park at 3 Crown Square, 55 Central Ave., will open in early spring 2009. It will initially house approximately 200 employees. The company anticipates that number will grow to 500 within three years. CSC will begin delivering services from a temporary location in the same area starting Nov. 1, 2008.
The company also plans to construct a data center facility in or near Tianjin to address global demand for technology hosting and managed services within the region. The efficient and cost-effective modular design will allow CSC to meet customer needs for several years and grow in 200-square-meter increments as required. Construction of the data center is scheduled for completion in mid-2010.
The Tianjin center expands CSC’s World Sourcing global delivery capability in Asia and joins an integrated network of more than 50 global delivery centers, including locations in Canada, Chile, the Czech Republic, India, Lithuania, Malaysia, Spain and Vietnam. These operations provide complete coverage of all CSC clients’ current requirements and have been designed to support future business needs. The Asia centers provide infrastructure, applications and business process outsourcing services while simultaneously offering clients a variety of language and technology skills. Best-in-class tools and processes permit seamless movement of work between and among the centers.
In addition, this significant investment demonstrates CSC’s support of further domestic growth in China while bringing the company closer to fulfilling its strategy of gaining greater market presence within targeted industries in China through CSC’s offering of best-of-breed solutions and services.
“We are pleased to announce the establishment of our new China Delivery Center,” said Laphen. “Strengthening our global delivery framework and expanding our presence in Asia are key elements of our multi-year growth strategy. China is an important location for us, and we’re committed to developing and expanding our capabilities here. We look forward to our grand opening early next year and to establishing Tianjin as a fully operational center in our World Sourcing Services global network.”
Congratulating CSC on the new center, Huang Xingguo, Mayor of the Tianjin Municipal Government, said, “We are very glad to have CSC, a leading global IT services provider, invest in Tianjin and build its first delivery center for China at the Tianjin Airport Industrial Park. Tianjin, as the economic center for North China and an international transportation hub, has many competitive advantages to further develop the outsourcing services industry. The entry of CSC in Tianjin will make a positive contribution to developing Tianjin’s outsourcing services industry and promoting economic development in Northern China. We are confident that this will be a successful partnership and a win-win relationship between CSC and Tianjin.”
Services offered from the new facility include applications development and maintenance and service desk. Languages supported by the service desk include Mandarin, English, Korean and Japanese. Once the data center is complete, CSC will also offer both applications and data hosting.
