MANILA, Philippines —  California-based IT giant Ingram Micro is expanding its presence in the Philippines as it continues to beef up its presence in the Asia Pacific region.

Ingram Micro recently inaugurated a new facility at the Two World Square, Upper McKinley, Taguig City to house its diverse and brilliant Filipino talents supporting various processes, from global IT operations to sales and fulfillment.

The Fortune 100 and wholesale technology distribution world leader Ingram Micro continues its aggressive expansion in the global IT market by bringing its continued growth on Philippine shore as its Global Shared Services in Manila.

Established in 2009, the Ingram Micro Global Shared Services-Manila is part of a 30,000 strong workforce that supports more than 1,700 vendors and 200,000 customers.

Ingram Micro managing director Junar Amador said the company continues to dominate in the IT distribution space.

He pointed out Filipinos have become one of the most sought-after talents to support the increasing demands for its global operations.

“It just proves how ubiquitous the Filipino workforce is in the success of the global IT-BPM industry. Philippines is not just a social media capital, we have also become the IT-BPM capital of the world, thanks to the globally competitive Filipino talents. As a global IT brand, we believe that this is where the future is going and the Filipino workforce will continue to be at the forefront in elevating the IT-BPM industry to greater heights,” Amador said.

He said Ingram Micro will continue to invest in the Philippines as well as Filipino talents.

“That’s why we put tons of our efforts in our People agenda, such as shaping our culture according to the values that our talents can deeply relate to, and creating a great employee experience that is life enriching and truly rewarding,” he added.

Aside from remittances from overseas Filipinos, the country’s business process outsourcing (BPO) industry continues to be a major source of foreign exchange.
