In order to extend its geographic footprint, Taleris – a joint venture between GE Aviation, an operating unit of General Electric Company (GE - Free Report) , and Accenture plc (ACN - Free Report) – recently unveiled its new headquarter facility in Irving, Texas. The facility spanning 28,000 square feet of space is expected to house 100 employees within the first year of its operation.

Leveraging on the technological expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, Taleris provides all the requisite back-up support to airlines and cargo carriers across the world to improve operational efficiency through effective analysis of aircraft performance data, prognostics, and recovery. Taleris use proprietary algorithms to help the airlines take appropriate decision to pre-empt unscheduled maintenance, delays and cancellations that burden their exchequer billions of dollars each year.

With a roster of high-tech companies, Irving is a thriving business destination for Taleris. The city has ‘AAA’ ratings by Moody’s Investor Services and Standard and Poor’s for General Obligation Bonds owing to its large tax base, strong financial management policies, formal investment and reserve policies, and strong general fund reserves. In addition, the city also has AA1 ratings for Water and Sewer Bonds due to competitive combined utility rates and solid financial position. Consequently, Taleris expects that its new headquarters would benefit from the improved infrastructure facilities and other amenities to further develop its business.
