SFW launches new offices and a wholly owned subsidiary in Vadodara, India
SFW Ltd is delighted to announce the opening of SFW India's new offices in Vadodara, India, and the commencement of trading of SFW India Pvt. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of SFW Ltd. Located in Vadodara’s prime commercial district in the recently built Ozone building, SFW India offers a purpose-built environment for Software development, technical collaboration and testing.
Having manufactured software in India via outsourcing arrangements since 2008, SFW has the experience and proven processes that enable it to blend offshore and UK development, successfully. The establishment of SFW India as a direct subsidiary and the opening of new offices allow it to embark on the next phase of growth and integration with the UK and further extend physical and data security as required. SFW India now has a working environment designed to enhance collaboration, with significant provision for further expansion, and offers improved career opportunities. It also provides a platform for domestic sales within India.
Speaking about the transition and official opening, SFW Director Peter Hornsby said “This is a great day for SFW and is a very significant milestone in SFW’s 21 year history. SFW India has grown 7-fold in the last 5 years and is now ready to become a fully-fledged operation in its own right, with further room to double in size again. I am delighted with the achievements to date and look forward to continued success.”
Steve Elliott also added, “SFW India gives SFW’s clients further access to the outstanding technical talent that is available in India. Peter and I aim to continue as we started, hiring top talent so that SFW India becomes not only a centre of technical excellence, but also somewhere people aspire to work.”
“SFW India,” he continued “provides a global platform for SFW’s operations, allowing it increased access to markets and offering new opportunities to deliver excellently engineered software.”
