US SOFTWARE COMPANY ACUSOFT CHOOSE GLASGOW FOR EUROPEAN HQ

US software company AcuSoft have announced the opening of their first European office in Glasgow.

The company who provide custom software solutions for large US companies and public-sector clients, plan to recruit 10 software development engineers in Glasgow to provide development services for energy industry clients in the United States.

Scotland’s availability of talent and supportive business environment were cited by the company as key factors in their choice to locate here. 

Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work, Keith Brown had the opportunity to congratulate AcuSoft Director Rebecca Hansen on their decision during his visit to New York last month.

Commenting on the news he said: “Scotland offers technology companies a connected and collaborative location to develop, test, demonstrate and deploy innovative, cost effective solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges. I wish the company success as they integrate into the Scottish business community and through Scottish Development International we will continue to support their future focus and growth in Scotland.”

Rebecca Hansen, Director at AcuSoft, said: “Scotland, specifically the Glasgow metro area, provide a compelling value proposition, enabling AcuSoft to deliver the solutions our customers need at a much lower cost than the traditional technology centers. AcuSoft is able to leverage a well-trained and highly-educated workforce, in a city with the modern infrastructure necessary for operating a technology services company without the progress inhibiting overheads of London, Seattle or Silicon Valley”.

Paul Lewis, interim CEO, Scottish Enterprise, said: “AcuSoft’s decision to choose Glasgow for their new European HQ is fantastic news and highlights the competitive advantage that Scotland has as a place for international business. We have worked closely with the company as they made their decision and will continue to support them as they grow in Scotland.”
