Capgemini’s £17.1m investment over five years is being backed by £1.4m in Welsh Government Business Finance funding.
Announcing the news today Economy Minister Edwina Hart described it as a significant and very welcome investment.
Opening in January 2016, it will become the company’s primary development site for both public and private sector contracts that require a UK-based centre to deliver security sensitive projects.
The Minister said:
“This is excellent news and I am delighted Capgemini is expanding its operations in Wales. Capgemini is a global IT brand that will bring high quality, well paid, and specialist technical development roles to the region. Capgemini’s decision to base this new operation in Wales sends out a very strong message about the expertise and availability of high level skills in Wales.
“It is also a very welcome addition to the security sector cluster in South Wales. The region has developed a strong reputation for expertise in this highly specialised area and recognised as one of the primary locations in the UK for the research, development and commercialisation of security related products and services.”
