Gislen to double head count in India

September 12, 2014 12:04 am | Updated 12:04 am IST - CHENNAI:

Swedish IT outsourcing firm Gislen Software is planning to double its head count in India to 100 from 50.

Founded in 1994, Gislen Software is focused on exports to Scandinavia. It has competence in areas such as public transportation and embedded systems, among others.

The firm has a facility at Madras Export Processing Zone near here, and has completed 20 years in India.

“We have grown from a 3-people start-up into an agile company focused on niche applications in the past 20 years,” Mikael Gislen, Managing Director and majority stake holder of Gislen Software, said.

The company counts TNS, ABB, SKF, Scandinavian Airlines, Swedish Match and PostNord as its top clients.

Mr. Gislen said the firm’s current facility could house 80 people, and it would be looking at an extra facility within MEPZ or in the neighbourhood.

Mr. Gislen also said that low attrition had also helped the company.
