Though HCL 's Hardware division- HCL Infosystems) had a good market presence and earned substantial revenue, both in the private and Government sector they never expanded big, here at Madurai and were under the control of regional office at Trichy. obviously those vested interests at Trichy , scuttled all the expansion plans for Madurai. suddenly with steep erosion of HCL'S marketshare hcl, have put forth a new proposal to set up software development divisions in MADURAI and Tirunelveli. since it (HCL) had already surrendered it's floor space occupancy in the Ilandaikulam and Vadapalaji I.T parks , there are quite some strong reasons to be skeptical about these plans. chances are , it could even be an exclusive development centre , built on its own. nonetheless, Maduraiites wish well to set up its venture soon, do good business and provide jobs to many talented youngsters of this city.
HCL will pump in Rs 500 crore in Thiruchirappalli and Madurai and hire 10,000 people. S. Premkumar, Executive Vice Chairman and Managing Director, HCL Infosystems Limited, said, “We will develop Madurai as a core area for technology as we go along. We will also have design labs.”
