Capgemini, a global consulting and technology firm, announced that it is expanding its operations in Richland County with the opening of an advanced technology and development center. The new center is projected to create at least 200 jobs, with the potential for additional positions in the future.
Capgemini's expanded operations are part of its worldwide, connected network of advanced technology and development centers, where diverse teams of innovators develop and implement new technology and digital experiences. In February 2017, Capgemini acquired Columbia-based insurance and information technology (IT) services firm TCube Solutions, Inc., and in December 2017, the company opened a new office in The BullStreet District, which is designed to attract modern, knowledge-based companies.
With this latest investment, Capgemini will expand its footprint in the First Base Building at Spirit Communications Park at BullStreet. The company will hire, train, and develop a team of technology experts focused on emerging and advanced technology solutions for a variety of critical clients across multiple industries.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $400,000 Set Aside grant to assist with the costs of building improvements.
"We're excited to lead the growth of emerging and digital technologies in Columbia and the region," said Paul Naquin, executive vice president. "This investment will be a place where our clients and employees will be exposed to a new way of approaching strategy and growth, using emerging technologies that will radically change the way we do business."
