Quark eyes North India expansion

US desktop publishing giant Quark Inc will expand its 5-acre base in the northern India city of Mohali, near Chandigarh, UT, according to officials at the Denver, Colorado-based firm.

By CBR Staff Writer

Quark is now planning a massive 46 acre complex in Mohali that officials say will create a blend of industrial, commercial, and residential and make it north India’s largest technology business park. Quark’s subsidiary company, Quark Software will establish itself as an anchor company in the complex, occupying a significant amount of office space.

Quark officials claim that US companies such as Dell Computer Corp and Convergys Inc have expressed an interest in the $100m project.

Quark revolutionized the publishing industry when it released its well-known QuarkExpress page-layout software in 1987. The company has since expanded to digital media/content and has garnered around four million users worldwide.

Quark’s move to target northern India as a base is unusual given that most US companies target India’s Silicon Valley of Bangalore and Hyderbad for primary expansion into the country.
