Agreements Are the Result of Governor’s Outreach Efforts in India
Today Governor Phil Murphy announced three India-based companies with operations in New Jersey will expand their existing presence here, adding roughly 1,250 jobs. The Governor made the announcement while in India on a seven-day trade mission.
Governor Murphy said the new jobs are a direct result of the trip and the face-to-face meetings he’s conducted while there. He stressed that the companies have decided to increase their presence here based solely on the value the state provides and without any tax incentives.
“We’re thrilled that these companies have recognized New Jersey’s value and have chosen to expand their existing operations in our state,” said Governor Murphy. “These good, high-paying technology jobs are exactly the kind we want to continue to bring to New Jersey as we seek to reclaim our spot atop the innovation economy.”
Mumbai-based information technology firm Tata Consultancy Services will expand its workforce by approximately 700 jobs, bringing its New Jersey workforce to roughly 4,700 employees.
Larsen & Toubro will add approximately 400 jobs, boosting its Edison workforce to about 1,000 workers.
Birlasoft, part of the New Delhi-based conglomerate CK Birla Group, will add an additional 160 jobs.
The governor’s seven-day visit includes trips to six cities totaling more than 50 meetings and public events with businesses he’d like to see establish or expand their presence in New Jersey.
On Monday, the Governor also announced that Choose New Jersey is opening a permanent office in India in order to help develop relationships and attract new businesses to the state.
