Fujitsu has expanded its Global Delivery Center (GDC) network with the formal opening of a new office in Cebu. The satellite office is an extension of Fujitsu?s GDC in Manila.
From the Manila office, which opened in 1993, Fujitsu delivers various services in remote infrastructure management, service desk, application services and business process outsourcing, primarily to customers in the Asia Pacific region, North America, Europe, the Middle East, India, Africa and Oceania.
The teams working in Cebu will initially focus on providing Fujitsu customers with support in business application development.
The high proportion of Japanese speakers in the region was another key factor in Fujitsu?s decision to choose Cebu, and to create 400 new positions there over the next two years.
The new GDC satellite office is based in Cebu Business Park which aims to provide green space as well as business, lifestyle, and leisure activities to create an inspiring environment.
The city?s high population of well-educated, technically skilled people, who often boast multiple language skills, was a key factor for Fujitsu’s decision.
“Our Global Delivery Centers are strategically located to offer customers access to a consistently high quality service and pool of dynamic and talented employees with high technical and multilingual skills. When expanding our GDC in the Philippines beyond Manila, Cebu was an obvious choice. We are fortunate that many Cebuanos speak Japanese, as well as being great software developers,” said Arlene Gregorio, head of Fujitsu?s GDC in the Philippines.
