Tquila Automation Plans Birmingham, Alabama, Regional Delivery Center

Intelligent automation consultancy Tquila Automation plans to establish a regional delivery center in Birmingham, Alabama. The project is expected to create 200 jobs over the next five years.

The new hub will be located in the former Edwards Motor Co. building at 1531 Third Ave. North within the city’ innovation district, The Switch.

“Business leaders are recognizing how future-proofing their operations with artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation can drive better business outcomes,” said Tom Abbott, CEO and co-founder of Tquila Automation. “By investing in technology careers in the City of Birmingham and the State of Alabama, we’re on the front-line driving innovation in businesses, supporting the demand for new jobs and growing talented team members.”

Tquila Automation operates as a consultancy that helps businesses streamline their functions by focusing on robotic process automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning and other emerging technologies. The company serves clients in industries including manufacturing, FMCG, financial services, energy, and insurance. Tquila Automation currently has over 100 employees in offices located in Austin, London and Amsterdam as well as a regional delivery center in Cardiff, Wales and a global center in Bucharest, Romania.

“Birmingham is nurturing an increasingly dynamic high-tech business ecosystem, so it’s great news to see a company like Tquila Automation setting up an operation in the city,” noted Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “This project will not only create high-paying jobs but also reinforce the growth potential of the tech sector in the Birmingham region.”

Tquila Automation said the new location will allow it to tap into Birmingham’s world-class universities and the large workforce base in the metro area. New team members will enroll in its Tquila Tech Academy for training in the design and delivery of automation solutions.
