According to a press release, Infosys is opening an office in Baden. This is part of Infosys’ overall growth strategy of helping clients in the energy and aviation industries navigate their digital transformation journeys. In Baden, the aim in particular is to strengthen the company’s expertise in turbomachinery and propulsion.
Baden has traditionally been a strong base for engineering and home to Brown Boveri, which Infosys cites as one of the pioneers in the world of turbomachinery. Brown Boveri later merged with the Swedish company ASEA to create ABB. According to a press release by the City of Baden, which supported the project together with Aargau Services and the City of Baden business development initiative, Infosys wants to benefit from the “exceptional potential of the pool of experienced engineers”, the “local turbine expertise” and the “innovation potential” and “Baden’s extreme openness to innovation”.
“By choosing this location, Infosys has chosen to base itself at the center of the Swiss engineering, electrical and metal industry, which has a long tradition. Infosys will help to further this tradition in the future”, says Dr. Urs Hofmann, Landamman and Head of the Department of Economic Affairs and the Interior.
Infosys operates globally and is headquartered in Bangalore in India.
