Infosys To Set Up Innovation Hub In Raleigh, Hire 2,000 Americans
13-Sep-2017

India's second largest software services firm Infosys today said it will set up a technology and innovation hub in Raleigh in North Carolina, where it is expected to hire 2,000 American workers by 2021.In July, Infosys had announced it will set up a centre in North Carolina as part of its plan to hire a total of 10,000 locals for its US operations in the next two years.The move was also seen as a bid to woo the Trump administration that has been critical of outsourcing firms for "unfairly" taking jobs away from the US workers.The first of the four centres -- located in Indiana -- was announced in May this year.Infosys, in a statement today, said the new hub in Raleigh will open in early 2018 and occupy 60,000 sq ft.The company plans to hire the first 500 workers in Raleigh innovation hub within two years, with the remainder to be hired in the state by 2021, it added.
