Qualitest, a independent managed services provider of quality assurance and testing solutions has opened its new headquarters in Central London following a period of growth. Serving as a central location with access to Qualitest's US, Israel, India and Romanian offices, London is also a base for prominent existing clients , it says.
Following an injection of capital resulting from Bridgepoint's taking of a majority stake in Qualitest, the company is expected to accelerate its acquisition strategy and global expansion.
With new contracts with companies in the telecommunications, insurance, banking, government and cyber security sectors in the last few months, Qualitest is expecting to more than double the number of quality engineers in the UK over the next three years.
Norm Merritt, CEO at Qualitest said: "Having a state-of-the-art global headquarters is a significant step for Qualitest as we continue to expand our global base. London remains a global hotspot for technology and innovation, and we look forward to the new possibilities it will bring."
Brian Shea, Managing Director for UK and Europe at Qualitest said, "Moving the headquarters to London begins an exciting phase of development for our corporate and EMEA teams. Capitalising on the traction of our recent client wins, we expect to create hundreds of new jobs in the software testing market, and advance London as a central hub for Quality Engineering on the world's stage."
