TISA, an Argentine software engineering company, has signed a lease to move into office space at 16360 Park Ten Pl., which is located in the Energy Corridor and Katy area according to the Katy Economic Development Council. TISA provides expertise for construction of applications and products from its locations in Buenos Aires, Argentina as well as the Houston area. TISA’s project expertise includes main programming languages, development frameworks, mobile platforms, databases, analysis methodologies, and other technologies and tools.
TISA’s President Ariel Sztern says his company has high expectations about business possibilities arising from the move. “The Greater Houston Partnership facilitated initial contact between TISA and the Katy Area Economic Development Council, and the resulting consultations eventually led to TISA’s decision to open a Katy area office,” says Sztern.
Craig Richard, Chief Economic Development Officer of the Greater Houston Partnership (GHP), said TISA attracted interest because of its incredible work with the energy industry in Argentina and the opportunity to get nearer to many of its major customers from the energy sector located in Houston. “TISA will be a great addition to the many software engineering companies now in the region,” says Richard.
TISA’s arrival is the latest of several new software/technology companies moving into the Katy area, particularly companies involved in the energy industry. Katy Area EDC President/ CEO Lance LaCour thanked the GHP for their assistance and said TISA is a welcome addition to the Katy area business community.
“TISA is one of several energy technology and software companies, such as Safekick and Jurat Software that now call the Katy area home,” says LaCour. “I believe we have been able to provide some valuable assistance to these firms to locate here. We are expecting to make some other announcements, possibly this year and likely next year, about similar companies. Also, I believe this partnership with TISA may lead to other Argentine companies considering the Katy area for corporate locations.”
Katy Area EDC helped the Argentine firm find a suitable facility and expedited training/workforce recruitment assistance to TISA, LaCour notes.
TISA plans to begin with a staff of five at the new office, with a goal of hiring 50 people. Workforce Solutions will help TISA find employees for the new office. “Workforce Solutions is very excited to be able to work with TISA’s President, Ariel Sztern, and his company,” says Susan Dixon of Workforce Solutions. “Mr. Sztern brings high-end positions to the Katy community and with the number of talented candidates that we have in our WorkinTexas database, he will have no problem being able to fill those positions. We offer Mr. Sztern an HR solution to his workforce problem, so he may compete in the global economy.”
