Computacenter inaugurates €1.2 million service center
UK-based IT infrastructure service provider Computacenter inaugurated a 1,700-square meter, €1.2 million service center in Budapest’s Haller Gardens on Tuesday. Leasing of the space had been announced by Computacenter in mid-September.
On hand for the grand opening were Computacenter CEO Mike Norris and Hungarian Investment and Trade Agency (HITA) chairman János Berényi.
The center will employ 50 multilingual Hungarians at the start, but staff numbers are expected to rise to 250 by the end of 2015, and to 500 later on. The increase in headcount would be accompanied by another €1.2 million investment from the UK company.
Norris said Computacenter chose Budapest for a location because of the well-educated local labor force, specifically the depth of technological understanding and knowledge of languages.
