The Monterrey facility provides Wipro with the dedicated resources to service clients in North America, Latin America and Europe with bi-lingual talent in a convenient time zone and close proximity. It further strengthens the company’s global delivery model capabilities and joins such new facilities already on the network such as development centers in Brazil, Europe, China, US and Canada.

In addition, this centre will also strengthen our market presence in the region,” said Dr AL Rao, Chief Operating Officer, Wipro Ltd.

I am sure that this relation that has now begun will also enhance the partnership between the people of India and Mexico,” said Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, President of the United States of Mexico.
Wipro chose to establish a presence in Mexico because of the broad language skills available in the region, its geographical proximity to Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Latin America is a strong emerging market and one where many of Wipro’s clients have operations.
“We are very optimistic about the growth opportunities and potential of talent available in this region.
