Three India-based technology consulting companies with operations in New Jersey will expand their presence, adding approximately 1,250 jobs.
The new jobs are a direct result of face-to-face meetings Gov. Phil Murphy has conducted during his seven-day trade mission in India, according to his office. The companies have decided to increase their presence without any tax incentives, the administration said.
“We’re thrilled that these companies have recognized New Jersey’s value and have chosen to expand their existing operations in our state,” Murphy said in a statement. “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 Tata Consultancy Services will create roughly 700 jobs in New Jersey, bringing its local workforce to roughly 4,700 employees.
Larsen & Toubro, a conglomerate with businesses that included construction, technology and engineering, plans to add approximately 400 jobs to its Edison location, bringing its numbers to about 1,000.
Birlasoft, an IT services company that also operates a location in Edison, will add an additional 160 jobs.
The governor’s visit includes more than 50 meetings and public events with businesses he’d like to see establish or expand their New Jersey presence. The visit includes six cities in all.
