Ashish Gupta, Corporate Vice President at HCL Technologies said, Germany is a critical market for HCL as we continue to expand our business in Europe. We feel the German market is at an inflection point and it is the right time for HCL to expand and make significant investments here. HD has a long-standing track record of high-quality service delivery and we are confident this will play a significant role in our continued growth in Germany.

HDs existing delivery center in Gifhorn, Germany, will become part of HCLs global delivery footprint and will focus on IT and engineering services both in Germany and globally.
Bernhard Hnigsberg, CEO of the HD International Group, said: By combining HDs delivery capabilities with those of HCL, we have an unprecedented opportunity to add tremendous value to the services we provide to support our clients IT transformation ambitions. Furthermore, the experience and know-how of HCL and HD complement each other perfectly and our employees are set to benefit significantly from the new opportunities that lie ahead."
