The engineering and IT services company said this is a continuation of its expansion plan. It already has a presence in cities like Bengaluru, Pune, Delhi, Aurangabad and Hyderabad.
The company said it was bullish on India as the country has a talent pool which is very diverse and will help the group prepare for new technological areas. Alten, in India with all its subsidiaries, had close to 8,000 employees by the end of 2022 and said it plans to add close to 7,000 engineers by 2025 organically and inorganically.
“This new office will help significantly in our vision to be the most preferred technology partner in India across multiple industries. Alten group has decided to invest and develop technologies from India as we see huge talent and growth potential in the Indian market,” Uttamkumar Sankpal, chief executive, Alten India said in a statement.
“It is conducive to invest in India as it’s a win-win situation for both employer and employee,” Pascal Amore, APAC head, Alten Group said.
Alten added that it plans to acquire a few companies across India which will help bring more capabilities and capacities. The jobs will create more opportunities in India and more than double the company’s headcount in India alone. The company said it expects the Indian operations to contribute a 100% growth in terms of revenue.
