Qualitest opens London headquarters
Qualitest, the software testing specialist, has announced that it is moving its global headquarters to London. Based near Liverpool Street station, the office will serve as a central location with easy access to the company’s additional offices in Romania, India, Israel and the US, Qualitest said.
The announcement follows Bridgepoint Capital’s $420m majority purchase of Qualitest in July. According to CEO Norm Merritt, the investment would be used to facilitate expansion and accelerate Qualitest’s global acquisition strategy.
Speaking about the new headquarters, Merritt said: “Having a state-of-the-art global headquarters is a significant step for Qualitest as we continue to expand our global base. London remains a global hotspot for technology and innovation, and we look forward to the new possibilities it will bring.”
Brian Shea, Managing Director for UK and Europe at Qualitest said, “Moving the headquarters to London begins an exciting phase of development for our corporate and EMEA teams. Capitalising on the traction of our recent client wins, we expect to create hundreds of new jobs in the software testing market, and advance London as a central hub for quality engineering on the world’s stage.”
