iGATE Corporation, an integrated Technology and Operations (iTOPS) firm, announced that it will begin operating a new US$2 million facility in Guadalajara, Mexico on Monday, Oct. 20, 2008. The new center, iGATE Global Solutions Mexico S.A. de C.V., will utilize local workers to offer near-shore iTOPS, IT and BPO services to a variety of U.S. and Latin American clients.

iGATE’s Guadalajara facility is the latest addition to the company’s international network of locations in the United States, Canada, India, Malaysia, Australia and the United Kingdom, providing truly global, technology-based solutions to Fortune 1000 and government clients across a range of sectors. The facility plans to employ twenty-five staff in the near future, reaching one hundred by 2010.

“Mexico’s proximity to the U.S. and participation in NAFTA makes it an ideal location for a state of the art delivery facility. Our facility in Guadalajara will enable us to provide services with a very quick turnaround fuse like rapid application support and application development using rapid prototyping,” said Phaneesh Murthy, CEO, iGATE Corporation.
