Lanit-Tercom, one of the leading Russian providers of scientific intensive software and hardware solutions, opened an office in Italy with the aim to further expand its business activities in Western Europe. Since 1991 the company has been working on the international market having long-term collaboration with the customers from Europe like from Denmark, Sweden, Germany as well as from the US.
Lanit-Tercom established its office in Bari, Apulia thanks to the presence of outstanding Universities with high level of IT Research & Development activity as well as the high qualified skills and technical knowledge in computer science, software engineering and digital communication.
Lanit-Tercom Italy started operations in January 2016 with an initial small team of the Russian developers, who will be able to transfer technical knowledge of the on-going projects to the local specialists, as it’s planed to increase the team hiring the local developers by 2016.
Lanit-Tercom has been supported by Invitalia, the National Agency for inward investment and enterprise development, in cooperation with the Regional Administration. Invitalia has provided a full assistance throughout the implementation process from the search of the relevant location and offices, the delivery of key information on legal/tax issues and labor costs, to the facilitation of direct contacts with local administration and Universities.
"Opening Lanit-Tercom Italy is an important milestone for us. We strongly believe our joint Italian- Russian software development team will succeed in many interesting R&D projects we have in mind. On behalf of Lanit-Tercom, we would like to thank everybody, who supported our initiative of setting up the office, especially Invitalia and Apulia Sviluppo, whose assistance and advice were invaluable in dealing with challenges we faced. Hope this project will make the connections between Italy and Russia stronger both in scientific and business areas"- the head of Lanit-Tercom Italia and COO of Lanit-Tercom Russia Vladimir Ufnarovskii.
