The Chennai based Information Technology and engineering consulting firm Barry-Wehmiller International Resources (BWIR) is planning to increase the company's headcount from the current 300 to 1,000 by 2012. As a first step, the firm has moved its business operations to a new larger facility in Chennai. The company is also eying acquisitions in India.

Though the firm started operations as a captive unit of Barry-Wehmiller Companies (BWC) in 1994, it has evolved into a hybrid model of business now. "While fifty percent of the total $12 million revenues generated is for the parent company, the remaining accounts from the U.S. market," claims the company.

"Our strategy is to strengthen our presence in Asia. Along with India, Japan is another important target for us as that country holds a high potential market for the engineering consulting service. A foothold in the Japan market will provide us with a significant strategic win in the Asia region," says Vasant Bennett, President and Managing Partner of BWIR.
