News that a leading provider of software based solutions is set to open up a new Swansea facility has today been welcomed by City AM Mike Hedges.
Hitec Laboratories, which specialises in governance, risk, compliance and enterprise content management software solutions, is set to open up a new software development and testing facility at the
Technium Swansea. The move, which has been backed by business finance investment worth £340,000 from the Welsh Government, will lead to the creation of sixteen highly skilled, well-paid jobs.
Speaking on the news, local AM Mike Hedges said:
“This is good news for Swansea and for the local economy. More and more companies are now looking towards Swansea as a place to do business and recruit highly skilled staff.
“Hitec will undoubtedly make an important and welcome addition to the Swansea business community, and I’d like to wish the business every success in the future.”
Economy Minister Edwina Hart said:
“I am delighted to welcome a company of Hitec’s calibre to Wales and that Welsh Government support played a pivotal role in their decision to invest in Swansea where they can expand and grow their business.
“Their investment also sends out a strong message to companies that Wales offers a first class, cost effective location for businesses looking to expand and recruit and retain skilled staff.
“Hitec is an important addition to the ICT sector in Wales – one of our key economic growth sectors so this investment is particularly welcome and I wish them every success in establishing and expanding their operation in Wales.”
Hitec CEO Jeremy Crame commented:
“This is an important strategic move for Hitec and we are looking forward to building a strong team in Swansea. Road and rail links between the Thames Valley and Swansea are excellent, and the availability of experienced team members in the area is great.
“The Welsh Government has been pivotal in supporting our decision and their assistance has been commendable. The official opening of the office towards the end of October will be a major milestone for us, and we are confident that the team will have a major impact on the future of Hitec.”
