DXC-Luxoft Opens New Italy HQ and Automotive Center of Excellence in Turin
Luxoft, a DXC Technology company (NYSE: DXC), has opened a new Italian headquarters and Automotive Center of Excellence in Turin. As part of the investment worth over $5 million USD (€4.4 million), Luxoft plans to hire 400 software engineers over the next two years. The move is designed to support Italian automotive companies with cutting edge technology talent and drive new revenue streams in the burgeoning area of software-defined vehicles.
With more than 30 years' experience in the country, DXC already employs over 2000 technology experts across Italy at facilities in Milan, Rome and Bari. By building on this presence and adding to the 200 software engineers it already has in the country, Luxoft is growing its capabilities to partner with Italian car manufacturers and OEMs as they tackle challenges such as data analytics, application management, and business process optimization.
Luxoft selected Turin based on its access to local skills, its proximity to key customers and partners, and its important position in Italy's automotive ecosystem. It forms part of a network of Luxoft facilities focused on digital mobility solutions across Europe and around the world.
Inaugurated today at a ceremony with Luxoft and DXC executives, government officials and leaders from automotive companies, Luxoft's new Italy HQ and Automotive Center of Excellence are housed in Turin's Lingotto building, previously a car factory, and today a symbol of Italy's automotive industry.
"The move to software-defined vehicles is a revolutionary and unstoppable force in today's automotive industry. In this new business model, automakers are able to engage customers directly with digital services, while at the same time reducing complexity and costs. Operating from Turin allows us to be part of one of the most important automotive hubs in the world where there is expertise, research capacity and an ecosystem of companies all working in pursuit of the vehicle of the future."
