Stocks in this article: GIB

CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) today announced that it will establish a new onshore information technology (IT) services delivery center in Lafayette, Louisiana. The location will be CGI’s fifth Onshore Center of Excellence and create as many as 400 new, high-quality IT jobs in southwest Louisiana over the next four years. The annual economic impact of CGI’s Lafayette center is estimated to more than $90 million over the next five years.

Governor Bobby Jindal said, “CGI is among the world’s leading providers of IT and business process services and represents yet another significant win for Louisiana’s fast-growing technology sector. This project provides further validation of our work to create a new Louisiana. The arrival of CGI in Lafayette means we will retain even more of our best and brightest graduates while also recruiting out-of-state talent who will recognize Louisiana as the next great state for business and career opportunity.”

“We welcome the opportunity to contribute to the economic growth and vision of Lafayette and the surrounding region,” said Dr. James Peake, Lt. Gen. (Ret) President, CGI Federal, a wholly owned subsidiary of CGI, serving clients in the civilian, defense and intelligence sectors of the U.S. government. “Our partnership with Lafayette represents a groundbreaking model for CGI – bringing together the local community to identify opportunities for innovation that can be applied globally, while tapping the talent and resources of Louisiana. As a continuation of our relationship with the state, this partnership will help create 400 jobs and serve as a model of corporate-community cooperation for keeping technology jobs in America. We congratulate the State of Louisiana and the Lafayette community on this comprehensive, innovative program.”

CGI’s onshore delivery model focuses on creating high-quality IT jobs in America. It is a core element of the company’s business strategy to offer affordable IT services options to government and commercial clients. The company continually looks for locations offering access to a quality workforce, strong economics, and partnerships with state and local government, academia and industry. With its continued growth and technology-savvy workforce, Lafayette is a perfect partner for CGI. CGI selected Lafayette after a nearly two-year site-selection process during which many locations across the country were considered. CGI’s also has onshore delivery centers in Lebanon, VA, Troy, AL and Belton, TX, as well as a regional center of excellence in Athens, OH.
