Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) today announces the inauguration of its new Global Service Center office in Empresalia corporate campus in Querétaro state to increase the capabilities of its Global Service Center in Mexico. The new 8,000 sqm facility will also host a Global Network Operation Center, incorporating all of the latest technology for remote monitoring and administration of network operations for Ericsson’s global customers.
The new facility in Querétaro is an expansion of Ericsson´s already existing Global Service Center in Mexico. It will also deliver planning, design, implementation and support services to customers in the Americas and Europe and will help to attract highly skilled professionals through its strategically location next to universities.
Orvar Hurtig, Head of Service Delivery and Operation at Ericsson says: "We are delighted to inaugurate our new Global Service Center facility today. The new office is located in a geographic location with good infrastructure and we value an environment that can offer flexibility and possibility for growth. We select locations for offices where there are excellent universities that can provide talented and well-educated people, so we can leverage on our local and global skill and scale."
Ericsson has been supported by Mexico’s Ministry of Economy and ProMéxico, a government institution that champions the country’s participation in the global economy and encourages foreign investment throughout the expansion process.
Ericsson manages networks that serve more than 1 billion subscribers worldwide, and supports networks that serve more than 2.5 billion subscribers.
