Part one of our series featuring "Recent foreign investments" in Hessen 

Wipro Technologies opens its European headquarters in Frankfurt am Main. The Indian-based company is one of the leading providers of IT and consulting services worldwide. From its new headquarters in the "Main-metropolis," the company intends to intensify its involvement in Europe, one of its strategic growth markets.

"Over 250 Indian businesses have already located to Hessen," explained Dr. Rainer Waldschmidt, CEO of Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH. "Among those are ten of the Indian Top 20 IT companies, which makes our state the leader in attracting Indian businesses to Germany. We at Hessen's economic development agencies, Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH, Wirtschaftsförderung Frankfurt (Frankfurt Economic Development Office) and FrankfurtRhineMain GmbH, are delighted that Wipro Technologies is so impressed with the state's location conditions and its logistical infrastructure that they decided to direct their European business from Frankfurt am Main in the future," Dr. Waldschmidt added.

"With the opening of our European headquarters, we are expanding our presence and highlighting our great commitment to supporting our customers and partners in the region," said Ulrich Meister, board member of Wipro Technologies. The decision to establish the European headquarters in Frankfurt is also a positive testimonial for Hessen as a business location. "The infrastructure and location of Frankfurt am Main offer the perfect conditions to achieve our ambitious goals," Meister added.

Wipro Technologies employs 140,000 people worldwide. Among their customers are companies from the fields of machinery and plant engineering, the financial sector, trade, telecommunications, and the energy sector.
