Mumbai, India and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - 21 May 2014 - Aegis Limited has increased its capacity from 1,000 to 1,600 employees across its experience center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Aegis has expanded its Malaysian operations as a result of new client partnerships and augmenting organic growth of its current client base across Telecom, Travel and BFSI verticals.
