HCL Technologies Brings New Jobs to the Northeast with Hartford Center Opening
Center to focus on creating new opportunities in digital innovation across industries
HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, is bringing technology, digital innovation and new jobs to the Northeast with the opening of its Global Delivery Center in Hartford. The new center serves its flagship client — Stanley Black & Decker — and will expand to support clients across industries including manufacturing, aerospace and defense, insurance, life sciences and health care.
“HCL is helping Stanley Black & Decker effectively manage and deliver the business technologies and services needed to thrive in a digital age”
Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont, Hartford Mayor Luke A. Bronin, HCL CEO C Vijayakumar, Stanley Black & Decker CEO James M. Loree and other dignitaries attended the Nov. 12 inauguration ceremony for the Center at 10 State House Square in Hartford.
HCL plans to create 500 new jobs in Connecticut in the next 24 to 36 months. Positions will include leading-edge technology roles in IoT, augmented reality, aerospace engineering, infrastructure, digital workplace, IT applications and operations technologies. HCL is also partnering with local community colleges and universities to create new opportunities for college graduates and to help fast-track careers for budding technology professionals.
First announced in February 2020, the Hartford Center will feature a Smart Manufacturing Lab showcasing state-of-the-art technologies from HCL and its ecosystem. It will ultimately serve as a primary hub for HCL clients in the region and nationwide. The Smart Manufacturing Lab is one of multiple centers HCL is opening across the United States as part of its expansion plans. HCL today has more than 22,000 U.S. employees.
“We are honored that HCL chose Connecticut to expand its presence in the U.S.,” Lamont said. “The Hartford Center will bring new opportunities to our community and connect our talented workforce and future graduates with job opportunities in some of the fastest-growing industries.”
“HCL is helping Stanley Black & Decker effectively manage and deliver the business technologies and services needed to thrive in a digital age,” Loree said. “We’re pleased to officially welcome HCL to Connecticut and we look forward to strengthening our partnership with the new center in our home state.”
“We’ve been committed to the Northeast with a strong presence in the tri-state area, and I’m thrilled to expand into Connecticut,” Vijayakumar said. “Our Hartford Center provides people the opportunity to work across a range of industries, leveraging cutting-edge technologies, and we are committed to becoming an employer of choice in the region.”
