MANILA, Philippines - Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions announced it is making the Philippines its regional hub.

In a briefing, Ian Hodge, group executive director said that they are planning to increase their local revenues by 50 percent this year. Fujitsu revenue has been increasing even with the financial crisis.

In 2007, revenues grew by 50 percent and then 25 percent the following year.

Likewise, he said they will be hiring from 70 to 100 employees this year.

In April, Fujitsu announced that they have acquired Australia and South East Asia operations of Supply Chain Consulting Pty. Ltd., a market leader of SAP and Oracle Enterprises.

The acquisition will result in expanded service offerings for local clients.

The move is expected to generate additional SAP income for both companies.

“Supply Chain Consulting is a leading global provider of enterprise and software solutions and this acquisition will further improve the services we are currently offering to our clients, especially in Manila,” Raymond Licdao, director of Supply Chain Consulting said.

“We are pleased with this development because it does not only tie us up with a global IT giant and now we also have more resources dedicated to support our board range of solutions and services,” he added.
