SCC has expanded its presence into Vietnam after secretary of state Liam Fox opened its headquarters in Ho Chi Minh City.
Fox (pictured, left, with Sir Peter Rigby) joined SCC founder Sir Peter Rigby and CEO James Rigby to open the new office, which was first announced when SCC released its full-year figures last June.
The new operation will act as the reseller's second global delivery centre, with the first based in Romania.
Rigby said: "The opening of our second global delivery centre is another important strategic milestone for the business and underlines our credentials as an international company with scale.
"Vietnam is an ideal location for our customer services due to its high-quality education system, over 300 IT-only universities and a high standard of English. We have selected local Vietnamese people for all our management positions and trained them all in the UK."
The Vietnam business will start off with 45 employees and will provide infrastructure technical support for server, storage and networking environments, as well as housing a software development centre to accelerate the development of applications.
Secretary of state Fox said: "We know there's global demand for British expertise and skills and my department wants to do all it can to help UK companies grow and build their presence abroad.
"Vietnam is a fast-growing region with great trade and investment potential for UK businesses and SCC is a great example of a business taking advantage of the opportunities to put in place ambitious expansion plans."
