Global consulting and tech services provider Prodapt, part of India’s 120-year-old Jhaver Group, is doubling its investment in the UK market to £100 million.
The increased commitment comes following UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s April visit to India to discuss trade and national security with the country’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
Prodapt plans to invest the amount over a number of years and anticipates creating more than 500 jobs. Earlier this year, the company established a new office in London to accommodate its growth.
With a focus on the connectedness industry, Prodapt accelerates digital transformation for its clients using technologies like 5G, cloud, edge computing, loT, and Al/ML. Prodapt’s customers include leading UK telecom operators, digital/multi-service providers, and advanced technology companies.
“Trade and investment between the UK and India is creating good jobs and sustaining livelihoods in both of our countries. I’m very pleased that Prodapt has decided to join the legions of Indian companies investing in the UK, boosting our technology sector, and driving economic growth,” PM Boris Johnson said in a statement.
“As the UK has becomes a hub for technology and innovation in the connectedness industry, it is natural to scale up our investment and commitment in the UK region,” said Vedant Jhaver, chairman and CEO at Prodapt.
“With this renewed vigour, Prodapt continues to be a preferred digital transformation partner to the enablers of the hyper-connected world,” he added.
Prodapt builds, integrates, and operates solutions enabling next-generation technologies and innovations. It works with global organisations such as AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink, Vodafone, and Deutsche Telekom among many others.
