Since CSC and HPE Enterprise Services merged to become DXC.technology in April, the East Hartford company has grown from a $6 billion to a $25 billion operation.

State Senator Tim Larson (D-East Hartford) toured DXC today with members of East Hartford’s local government to learn more about how the IT service company spurs economic development by helping other Connecticut businesses to manage and secure their data.

“This is exactly the type of industry we need to be focusing our attention on in Connecticut as an innovator and driver of our economy,” said Sen. Larson, the Senate Democratic Chairman of the General Assembly’s Insurance & Real Estate Committee. “DXC is a global powerhouse that has committed to keeping its roots in East Hartford and hiring Connecticut employees to fill good-paying jobs. I am hopeful we can find a way to connect DXC with other local companies, including those in the insurance industry, to find efficiencies for businesses while supporting this technology-driven enterprise.”

DXC.technology is the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, serving more than 6,000 private and public-sector enterprises across 70 countries. It counts United Technologies, Pratt & Whitney, General Dynamics and Sikorsky among its Connecticut-based clientele and has partnerships with companies including Amazon Web Services, IBM and Microsoft.

In addition to East Hartford, the company has several other locations in Connecticut and is among the largest taxpayers in Norwich, Meriden and Newington.

Since DXC’s initial establishment as CSC in Connecticut in 1991, the organization has grown its in-state labor force from under 500 employees to approximately 1,500 at present, with an average salary of $90,000.

The company has committed to what it describes as a “Connecticut for Connecticut for Connecticut” vision, hiring and training residents who attended a Connecticut college or university, live in state or have parents who live in state, for positions at one of its many locations locally.
