US-based IT giant IBM announced it would open a new business centre in Cluj-Napoca this July, the fourth centre operated by the IT company in Romania, after Bucharest, Brasov and Timisoara. For the new centre, IBM is opening around 100 IT jobs.
IBM adds to the list of residents such as Siemens, KPMG, Arvato Bertelsmann, Altran, Halcyon Mobile and Control Data Systems that have chosen the tech park opened three years ago in Cluj-Napoca to develop their local operations. In total, 33 mature companies and start-ups, both Romanian and foreign, totalizing more than 1.700 employees, occupy the tech park.
The occupancy rate of LTPC is now of 100%, and most of the residents are IT companies.
