Thiruvananthapuram, July 17 (IANS) IT services provider UST Global announced Thursday that it has entered into a five-year contract with Ohio-based Dana Holding Corp to provide IT solutions. The California-headquartered UST Global, which has a major presence in Kerala’s IT industry, in a statement here said the tie-up would help Dana improve its operational efficiencies and lower total cost of ownership.
“Dana had been seeking to move to a global sourcing and delivery model in order to lower its operating costs, while also providing shorter time-to-market for its e-business applications,” said Bill Umberger, director of IT corporate services for Dana.
“In addition, it needed a stable resource support structure to provide a global delivery framework that could quickly ramp-up, when needed, to handle emerging e-business development requirements,” he added.
Dana is a world leader in the supply of axles, drive shafts, structural, sealing, and thermal-management products.
Of the 5,500 employees of UST Global, more than 3,000 are employed in Kerala at the Technopark in Thiruvananthapuram and its Kochi office.
