Mercury Interactive, which was acquired by computer and software giant Hewlett Packard in a $4.5 billion deal in November last year, announced on Sunday, that the company was planning to continue to expand its Research & Development center in Israel by hiring 150 engineers in 2007. In acquiring Mercury, HP committed to keep Mercury's 760 employees who had worked in its offices in Yehud, making it HP's largest R&D center and bringing the computer giant's work force in Israel to 3,500. Last year Mercury, which employs 3,200 people worldwide, also hired 150 people in Israel. The announcement came on the day Intel Israel announced the closure of its vehicle component factory in Jerusalem, affecting the transfer of 300 employees.
