US BPO firm Motif mulls expansion in India
Ahmedabad, Jun 16 (PTI)
Motif, a US-headquartered business process outsourcing (BPO) company, has announced that it would expand its base in India by adding almost 1.2 lakh square feet of office space in Ahmedabad. Companys founder and CEO Kaushal Mehta said they are in talks with realty players in this regard. “With the latest addition of 2 new delivery centres, one each in the Philippines and in the city (Ahmedabad), we think that our current capacity in the Philippines would be enough for next one year. Now our focus is to add more capacity in the city, where we are having two centres at present,” Mehta said.
“We think we may run out of space in the next one year and may need some more space to open new centres here,” he said. The privately-held company has around 20 clients, mostly from the US and UK, said Mehta.
Motif also announced that it will construct 1,000 toilets in three remote villages of Kheda district of Gujarat as part of CSR initiative.
“Around 500 will be built in Punadara village of Kheda while remaining will be built in two neighboring villages. The company will incur a cost of Rs 1 crore on this project,” said Mehta.
