News : AsiaInfo Opens Delivery Center in Hungary
London and Budapest, 19th January 2015 - AsiaInfo, a Chinese telecoms IT supplier, announces the opening of its new European Nearshore Delivery Center (NDC). The NDC - which will support AsiaInfo’s increasing presence in Europe as the company begins a joint project with Telenor Hungary – will be co-located within Telenor Hungary’s Törökbálint HQ near Budapest.
AsiaInfo said it expected to employ some 180 staff in the Törökbálint center within two years and is planning to recruit more than half the workforce locally, working alongside experts relocating from China.
Announcing the opening of the NDC, AsiaInfo’s European Managing Director, Alex Hawker, said: "Little more than one year after announcing our first major European project, we are now embarking on our second one, and at the same time opening up a major new delivery center to support our customers and our expanding business."
At the ceremony to mark the official opening of the NDC, Christopher Laska, CEO of Telenor Hungary, said: "Last year we celebrated our 20th anniversary, now we are preparing ourselves for the next 20 years: our new partner AsiaInfo will help us further improve the Telenor customer experience.
"AsiaInfo will employ dozens of Hungarian developers, thus keeping local IT talents in Hungary and contributing to the growth of value-adding industries. I am particularly pleased that they are moving into the Telenor House in Törökbálint, further raising our profile as a center for excellence in telecommunications."
The first local engineers have already been recruited for the new NDC, which will be headed by AsiaInfo Senior Director, Chen Huaping.
Prior to joining AsiaInfo, Chen Huaping was Chief Solution Architect in the Telecoms Business Unit of Hewlett Packard. He has extensive experience of both telecoms business and technical architecture with a track record of success in delivering major projects.
