Globant SA on Monday said it planned to invest 65 million British pounds ($89.3 million) over the next three years in the U.K. and quadruple its teams there as part of its global expansion plan.

Globant said it plans to hire an additional 600 jobs and would establish the base for its Sustainable Business Studio Knowledge Hub in the U.K.

The IT services company also said it was expanding its London headquarters.

"The U.K. is extremely strategic for us and was really fundamental for our growth when we were born," Martin Umaran, co-founder and president of Globant in EMEA, said.

"We will continue to expand our presence, focusing at the same time on delivering transformation with a strong focus on sustainability," he added.
