CSC is opening new IT services delivery center in the Chinese coastal city of Tianjin on Tuesday, and has begun construction of a new data center for both global and local service.
The company did not specify the size of the Tianjin delivery center, but said that it would start operations in the spring of 2009, with local work beginning at a temporary location on Nov. 1. It will initially employ 200 workers, with plans to expand to 500 within three years. The data center would be completed and ready for use in mid-2010, CSC said.
The IT center will offer application development, maintenance and help desk services, and support English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean, the company said.
Tianjin is one of four cities directly administered by China's central government, and lies about one to two hours' drive southeast of Beijing.
