WIPRO expands in North Rhine-Westphalia
The Indian IT company opens a new European data center in Meerbusch.
With the new European data center in Meerbusch, WIPRO has opened its third branch in North Rhine-Westphalia. The 15 million euro investment represents one of the biggest commitments by an Indian company in Europe. 150 jobs will be created here.
The data center was officially inaugurated in September. On an area of approximately 10,000 square meters, WIPRO provides its globally operating customers primarily with server capacity and outsourcing of IT services in Europe. "If a medium-sized company has 40 to 50 servers and wants to save costs, then it outsources them to us," explains Christian Eberhardt of WIPRO.
Besides the data center in Meerbusch, WIPRO Technologies GmbH operates branches in Cologne and Munich with approximately 450 employees. Throughout the world, the Indian parent company WIPRO Limited, the third-largest IT services exporter, employs around 120,000 people and supplies customers in 54 countries.
