Delphi Technologies has opened its first multidisciplinary global IT centre in Bucharest, Romania.

The new site will provide IT services to the company's technical centres, manufacturing sites and business support functions worldwide, reported.

Bucharest was selected due to its impressive talent pool and is a natural expansion of the company's existing Romanian footprint, the company told the publisher.

"Our new Bucharest global IT centre is a continued commitment to our existing investments in Romania. We are creating a global IT team that will provide a platform to support our company in delivering real value. The Bucharest team will create innovative, technical solutions and services to support more than 20,000 employees across the globe," said Edward Mandic, vice president and chief information officer, Delphi Technologies.

The centre, which is located in the Globalworth Campus project in Pipera, will house up to 150 people who will cover core functions like IT security and compliance, enterprise architecture, IT operations, enterprise resource planning and global solution delivery. The group will continue to invest in developing this facility until 2022.

Delphi has already invested EUR300m in Romania, in the manufacturing site in Iasi, which produces high pressure pumps and injectors for the automotive industry.
