HCL Unveils New GDC in Vancouver

HCL Technologies (HCL), a global technology company, has opened its new delivery center in Vancouver, Canada. The new center will significantly expand its presence in the country to serve clients primarily in the HiTech industry.

The new, nearly 9,000-square-foot facility will be a state-of-the-art center enabling faster and streamlined delivery of innovative technology services.

This announcement follows a broader wave of momentum in Canada for HCL Technologies as the company has opened new delivery centers in New Brunswick, Mississauga and Edmonton, and also welcomed its first cohort of the HCL Technologies Apprenticeship Program in Vancouver. The program, part of the company’s early career and training program, gives high school graduates who do not have a formal college degree the ability to pursue a career in a fast-growing industry, with focus areas in software development and testing, digital and cloud services, infrastructure delivery and engineering.

HCL Technologies employs more than 2,000 people in Canada and is growing at a rapid pace. The new center will also feature a Customer Experience Center focused on the development of futuristic digital technologies and next-generation products and solutions for HCL Technologies’ global customers, including full-stack engineering solutions, customer experience and R&D services across different industries.

“Vancouver has a long-standing culture of innovation in technology and we’re excited to expand our presence and help bring new technologies into the region,” said Joelien Jose, EVP & Country Head, Canada, HCL Technologies. “With this launch, HCL Technologies is further cementing itself as a local employer, and as a leader in emerging technologies building a strong foundation for the future.”

“With this advanced facility, we will leverage our industry-leading digital engineering technology services and R&D capabilities to develop and deliver next-generation products and platforms for global customers,” said Vijay Anand Guntur, President, Engineering and R&D Services, HCL Technologies. This facility will also foster better collaboration across the Vancouver technology and education ecosystem.”

“This city has a reputation for major technological innovation and a highly sought-after talent pool feeding the broader tech industry,” said Kennedy Stewart, Mayor, City of Vancouver. “We’re incredibly proud to see industry leaders like HCL Technologies taking steps to further investment, foster innovation and unlock all the great potential that Vancouver has to offer businesses in the tech industry.”
