CGI to open new facility in Troy

On Friday, CGI Group Inc. and Alabama Governor Bob Riley announced the opening of a new Center of Excellence in Troy, Al. Opening in January of 2010, the new software development and testing facility will serve both commercial and government clients while creating 300 new jobs.

“Alabama is honored to welcome CGI and proud that the company has chosen our state for this new high-tech facility, ” said said Governor Riley. “The hundreds of new jobs coming here will mean more opportunities and brighter futures for so many Alabama families. When I signed our new economic incentives law in May, I said it would help us take our economic development efforts to a higher level and allow us to compete for jobs in the technology industry. Now we’re seeing that new law is working to strengthen our economy.”

“This new Center of Excellence in Pike County will allow CGI to continue to create highly-skilled, quality jobs in rural America, ” said  CGI US president Donna Morea. “The vision, leadership, and commitment of Governor Riley as well as the City of Troy, Pike County, and Troy University convinced us that CGI wanted to be a part of this strong, forward-thinking, community.”

CGI’s headquarters are located in Fairfax, Va.
