As of 2013, the company has 6000+ employees in 35 countries with the largest number of employees in India spread across many locations - Bangalore, Pune, Gurgaon and Chennai. On January 22nd, 2015, HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR), the premier audio, visual, infotainment and enterprise automation group, announced that it has signed an agreement with Symphony Technology Group to acquire Symphony Teleca. The deal is valued at about $780 Million US dollars and is pending subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to be completed by the end of HARMAN’s 2015 fiscal year.



Teleca was established in 1992 by a team of software specialists based in Manchester. Reference clients included Motorola, Racal, Digital, GEC, Hewlett-Packard, Psion and Siemens. Rapid expansion saw its customer base extend to cover mobile device vendors such as Nokia, Motorola and SonyEricsson.

Acquired in early 2000 and became the UK subsidiary of Sigma AB, a leading Swedish engineering services business with over 2500 professional staff across Europe.

In 2004 Teleca established a new office in Łodz, Poland and acquired Telma Soft, Russia in 2006. In 2008, Teleca opened up centers in India and China.

In 2008, Symphony Technology Group made a 100% buyout of Teleca and delisted it from the Stockholm stock exchange.
