Wipro roped in as technology partner by German aluminium firm Speira
Wipro said that it has been roped in as a technology partner by Speira, a German aluminium rolling and recycling company.
Speira was founded last year following Norsk Hydro Group’s sale of its rolling business to KPS Capital Partners.
It has seven manufacturing plants and a research and development (R&D) center across Germany and Norway.
Hans Petter Larsen — CIO of Speira said: “Reliable security solutions are becoming increasingly important in today’s business environment. Wipro provides a secure environment for internal employees and plant workers that is scalable and equipped for growth.”
Wipro said that during the next five years, it will work to bolster the technology infrastructure and cybersecurity needs of Speira as it launches a journey steered by a three-pronged focus centered on sustainability, innovation, and development of new products.
Vinay Firake — Wipro Nordics Senior Vice President and Managing Director said: “Wipro understands the importance of cloud security, particularly within the industrial sector, and has the perfect blend of expertise and experience to support the complex needs of one of the leading global aluminium manufacturers.
“Speira, operating globally, requires a fast-acting and reliable partner to both secure and expand its cloud capabilities within our five-year-long partnership.
“During this time, Wipro will develop solutions that solidify Speira’s cloud infrastructure and accelerate growth.”
