ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Hitachi goes into services
In November 2000 Hitachi Ltd., the Japanese technology manufacturing conglomerate, purchased Grant Thornton’s IT consulting arm. For Hitachi, the $90 million, 450-employee unit was its first foothold in the consulting world; the Tokyo-based company had previously focused solely on building computer equipment and semiconductors. Grant Thornton, meanwhile, saw the deal as a way to streamline operations and concentrate on its core tax and accounting businesses. (These days, Grant Thornton has re-entered the consulting game.)
