The new engineering centre, based in Bengaluru, is the result of a collaboration between Tata Technologies and GKN Automotive.
UK-based GKN Automotive, a known developer and global supplier of driveline systems and e-powertrain technologies, has announced a tie-up with Tata Technologies to set up a global e-mobility software engineering centre in India. The new engineering facility has come up in Bengaluru and was completed in just six months, following delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
With this centre, GKN's main focus will be on utilising Tata Technology’s expertise in electric and embedded systems. Therefore, India's young software engineering talent will work towards the development of GKN's next-gen e-Drive technologies. By the end of this year, the centre will become operational with over 100 engineers and support staff.
Sharing his thoughts on the new partnership, Warren Harris (MD & CEO – Tata Technologies) said, 'Tata Technologies, with a vision of "engineering a better world", enables global OEMs and Tier 1s manufacture and realise better products through its product design and engineering capabilities. This collaboration with GKN Automotive will significantly contribute towards the development of the next generation of EVs that are sustainable and help us achieve a greener world.'
