Freeborders, Inc., the leading global provider of offshore IT services and solutions delivered from centers of excellence in China, today announced the opening of a new delivery center in Wuxi, China. The 22,000-plus square foot infrastructure will provide application development, maintenance and support to Freeborders U.S., Europe, and Asia clients.
With the capacity for over 250 resources, this facility in Wuxi New District (formerly Wuxi High-tech Industrial Development Zone) will complement the IT services offered in the company's established centers in San Francisco, New York, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China. The expansion facilitates Freeborders' growth, provides additional business continuity capabilities, and attracts seasoned talent from the nearby Shanghai region bringing the company's total resource capacity to greater than 1000.
"The Wuxi government is proud to have leading United States-based outsourcing leaders like Freeborders accelerate the growth and innovation of the city's high-tech zone," said Mr. Wei Fang, Deputy Mayor, Wuxi Municipal Government. "We are eager to support Freeborders' expansion plans and look forward to helping them attract top talent in the region, further enabling the Wuxi New District to become the leading park in China for the development of outsourcing."

The major industries at WND include electronics, information technology, electromechanical engineering, bioengineering, new materials and fine chemical engineering.
