Tata Technologies, a global provider of engineering services and manufacturing enterprise IT, has set up an innovation centre in Troy, Michigan.
The centre will provide design and consulting services for automotive companies globally. The 10,000 square feet facility will initially staff 60 engineering professionals and the company plans to increase the headcount to 100 by end of this year (December 2013).
This complements the Novi, Michigan North American, headquarters and brings the total North America employee strength to more than 700 personnel, the company said in a statement.
The centre will be the North American home to the Tata Technologies Vehicle Programs Development (VPD) Group.
“The inauguration of our new centre is a proud moment for Tata Technologies as we are now increasing our presence in the world’s leading automotive market. This will further enable us to develop innovative solutions for our global customers. This investment also reflects our commitment to the local North American market,” Kevin Fisher, President – Vehicle Programs Development said.
