The centre, to be operational in the first quarter of calendar year 2017, will focus on emerging technologies such as robotics and automation, business analytics, cloud infrastructure and digital services.

The new centre would employ around 150 engineers over the next three years.

Tech Mahindra, one of the top five Indian IT services companies, has been serving Irish customers since its inception, across segments such as telecom, energy and utilities, BFSI and pharmaceutical.

Over 700 full-time employees work for its Irish customers of which over 320 are located in Ireland.

CP Gurnani, CEO and MD Tech Mahindra, commented: “This investment is a testimony of our long-term business commitment in the country and our mission to promote and support local talent leveraging Ireland’s rich skills in science and technology.”

He continued: “The opening of the centre of excellence at Dublin will not only enable us to better serve customers in Ireland and beyond, it also builds on the strong partnerships we have already established in the region by working with local organisations, academic institutions and the government.”

In 2015, the company opened a 300-seater delivery centre in Waterford, which currently employs around 220 people that primarily serve two major Irish telecom providers.

One of Tech Mahindra’s biggest clients, eir, will be serviced by the new centre of excellence. Richard Moat, CEO of eir, said: “The centre of excellence underlines the growing relationship we have with Tech Mahindra. Our goal is to seamlessly provide new and innovative products and services to our customers and Tech Mahindra assists us in the very competitive Irish telecommunications market.”
