Indian IT services firm Zensar Technologies has expanded to Mexico with the launch of a delivery center in Mexico City.
Pune, India-based company stated that it had already hired around 50 people, who will serve its American clients.
“Our Mexico operations will support some of our key customers in North America and Mexico across varied digital technologies,” says Venky Ramanan, a senior executive at Zensar.
Thanks to its geographical proximity and a free trade agreement (NAFTA) with the United States, Mexico is looking attractive to Indian IT services providers struggling to manage operations amid tightening immigration law in the US.
As a partner in NAFTA, Mexicans can obtain TN visas, a non-immigrant work visa similar to H-1B, to go and work in the United States.
In October last year, Hexaware Technologies, another Indian IT firm, similarly expanded operations in Mexico with a hope of using the TN visa.
“Mexico is a strategic choice for us due to its proximity to our key customers based in the US and the availability of local talent,” Sandeep Kishore, CEO of Zensar has said.
Zensar will also partner with Mexican educational institutes to identify and train young talent in IT services. “There will be focus on investing in local talent and developing them to build capabilities that will bring value to our customers,” Ramanan added.
