Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT US), a leading provider of software
development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client
base, today announced its plans to launch a new delivery center in
Guadalajara, Mexico. An office in Guadalajara will become Luxoft’s 22nd
location, 17th delivery center, and thereby expands the
Company’s presence to 14 countries around the globe.
The Guadalajara office will be supporting all six business lines:
Financial Services, Automotive, Travel & Aviation, Telecom, Technology
and Energy by delivering services and solutions, with a focus on clients
in North America. Luxoft plans for this location to be fully operational
by September 1, 2014 and expects to grow the delivery headcount up to
100 employees within the first year.
“One aspect of Luxoft’s value proposition has been effective nearshore
delivery within Europe, more specifically within Western Europe. Our
presence in Latin America now should allow us to effectively operate a
nearshore model for our clients and potential clients in North America,”
said Luxoft’s Vice President for Global Delivery, Dmitry Kushnir.
“Opening of this office in Guadalajara is consistent with our Global
Upgrade Program and goals of expanding our global delivery network and
obtaining more even distribution of talent across our key geographies.”
We believe Guadalajara has proved itself as a viable IT destination.
Leading global players, such as HP, IBM, Oracle, and other leading
multinationals have operations in the Guadalajara. We also believe
Guadalajara is not only a hub for local talent, but serves as a hub for
all of Latin America due to its strong infrastructure and security,
well-developed industrial parks, and an overall attractive climate and
Labor market in Mexico is expected to offer Luxoft a pool of over 90,000
technical graduates, including 6,000 engineering graduates and 2,000
IT-related graduates per year in Guadalajara. The Mexican government
continues to support and sponsor programs targeted at graduate students
studying electronics and computer science, most notably through the
Center for Post-Graduate Studies.
“We are very excited about this expansion, Latin America is a brand new
region for us and it further expands our global footprint. It also
significantly diversifies our offering of nearshore locations for our
global clients, who place utmost importance on convenience and the
logistics of delivery,” said Luxoft President and CEO, Dmitry Loschinin.
“Our delivery network will now span across more than half of the globe
from Ho Chi Minh City to Stuttgart to New York and soon from
Guadalajara. We hope it will provide a solid support for Luxoft’s
continued growth and performance excellence.”

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
