The expansion of BPS business will help Tech Mahindra bolster its presence in Europe, providing local and regional customers with direct access to its comprehensive range of services, including 5G, Metaverse, Blockchain, Quantum Computing, Cybersecurity, and Artificial Intelligence.

Birendra Sen, Business Head, Business Process Services, Tech Mahindra, said, "Tech Mahindra's expansion into the Baltic States is a pivotal stride in our growth strategy. Latvia's thriving tech ecosystem, skilled workforce, robust IT infrastructure, and favorable government policies make it an ideal hub for accessing European markets. This expansion highlights our commitment to regional growth and technological advancements in Europe, further empowering our customers to scale at speed and adapt their businesses like never before.”

The centre will employ approximately 500 professionals, further extending Tech Mahindra’s global workforce which spans over 145,000+ employees across 90+ countries.

Vilnis Ķirsis, Mayor of Riga, said, "The opening of Tech Mahindra's new service centre in Riga once again confirms the city's development and growing competitiveness. Riga is becoming increasingly attractive to global business service centres. These centres' presence promotes growth and innovation in research and smart technology. High-quality services improve the local business environment and increase company efficiency. We welcome Tech Mahindra to Latvia!"

Tech Mahindra’s commitment to environmental sustainability is exemplified by the new office in Jaunā Teika, Latvia’s premier business hub renowned for its dedication to innovation and sustainability.
