Babel continues global facility expansion

26th May 2009

Babel Media, the games industry’s leading outsource company, announced today that it is rolling out the next phase of its global expansion by significantly expanding its Montreal and New Delhi facilities as well as adding new positions in its Tokyo facility. By continuing to grow around the world, Babel is able to meet the game industry’s increasing need for flexible external resources providing immediate cost savings over in-house staff.

As part of the expansion in Montreal, Babel will build extra test labs to accommodate testing on next generation motion controllers, and create new employment opportunities for functionality and localization games testers, as well as project managers and integration engineers, as the company continues to increase its North American client base. This expansion means Babel is recruiting for its PC, Console, Online and Handheld test labs, native speakers of French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Korean, Japanese and Swedish, for full time or part time positions. Babel will provide its industry recognised in-house training, plus for recruits wishing to relocate to Babel’s Montreal facility, Babel will assist with relocation&visa assistance.

As part of its plans to locally service its growing Japanese client base, Babel will be adding positions in its Tokyo facility. Babel has recently moved into a new highly secure, state of the art facility in New Delhi India, owned by Babel’s parent company Quatrro, which will provide Babel with new test labs and a centralised back office facility.

"I am really delighted to be able to announce our continued expansion around the world" said Richard Leinfellner, CEO of Babel, he added "Babel’s expansion is all about putting people in the right place, or“right shoring” as we call it, this means offering our clients cost effective locations where we can deliver high quality services, helping them to improve their profits by giving them the much needed flexibility and allowing them focus on their IP generation”
