“Texas is a leader in the establishment of booming technology hubs because of innovative companies like Infosys,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “Companies such as Infosys are choosing to invest in the Lone Star State because of our business-friendly practices and rich and diverse talent pool. Infosys’ expansion in the city of Richardson will create hundreds of good jobs for Texans, and I thank Infosys for their investment and look forward to building on our already strong partnership.”

“We are pleased to see Infosys establishing its new technology and innovation hub in Richardson,” said Richardson Mayor Paul Voelker. “Infosys will benefit tremendously from the Telecom Corridor area’s access to leading corporations across a variety of sectors, a deep pool of experienced tech talent and strong academic partners preparing the professionals of tomorrow.
