Global prepress leader EskoArtwork, headquartered in Ghent, Belgium, has opened a new facility in Bangalore, India, in order to strengthen its systems integration development and E-support operation. The 6,000 square foot office will enable EskoArtwork's team of programmers, software developers and application engineers to extend the systems integration capabilities and E-support services to customers around the world.
EskoArtwork has been active in India since 1996 with a focus on developing commercial opportunities in the domestic market. In 2007, the company established the Global Resources Centre (GRC), which concentrates on providing support for its systems integration projects mainly originating in Europe and North America. With India taking an increasingly important role in the global economy, establishing a larger operation in the territory is a logical step in EskoArtwork's growth strategy.
“India is one of the world's fastest-growing business territories, so it's vital we have a strong presence in the region – not just from a sales perspective, but also from a development and global support standpoint," says Carsten Knudsen, CEO of EskoArtwork. "The new premises underline our commitment to investing in the GRC. We're dedicated to attracting the region's talented IT professionals and providing customers worldwide with exemplary technical support."
EskoArtwork's Indian operation employs 40 people divided among two areas: software developers and printing and packaging application engineers.
