NTT DATA Services is officially moving into its new North American headquarters in Plano, TX. A Texas Enterprise Fund grant of $7.5 million has been offered to the IT services provider for the creation of 6,377 new jobs and a capital investment of more than $28 million.
“We’ve called Texas home for many years and we’re proud to be part of the ever-expanding Plano technology corridor,” said John McCain, chief executive officer, NTT DATA Services. “The talent pool here is impressive and our new headquarters in the Legacy West development is a great location for our employees and clients.”
NTT DATA Services is a division of Japan-based NTT DATA Corporation, a global business with more than 110,000 employees in over 50 countries.
“Texas continues to be a trailblazer in the technology industry,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “NTT DATA is one of many industry leaders to invest in the Lone Star State, creating thousands of jobs for Texans. This cutting-edge company, combined with Texas’ business-friendly environment and high-skilled workforce, will undoubtedly make for a long and productive partnership.”
The state uses its Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) as a final incentive tool for projects that offer significant projected job creation and capital investment and where a single Texas site is competing with another viable out-of-state option. Since its inception in 2004, the TEF has awarded over 100 grants totaling more than $500 million across a wide variety of industries and projects.
“We are excited that a company with the global footprint of NTT DATA has chosen to deepen their relationship with the state of Texas and the City of Plano,” said Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere. “We are confident we will remain a business-friendly destination that provides an environment which spurs corporate success and expansion. We look forward to the opportunity to collaborate further with NTT DATA for many years to come.”
