GKN to open advanced e-mobility centre in IndiaGKN Automotive recently announced that it is joining forces with Tata Technologies, a global engineering and product development digital services company, to set up an advanced global e-mobility software engineering centre in India.

The new centre in Bengaluru will use Tata Technologies’ expertise in electric and embedded systems, and a widespread recruitment drive is underway to attract world-class talent to develop GKN Automotive’s next-generation e-Drive technologies. Once established and fully operational the centre will become a dedicated GKN Automotive facility.

Liam Butterworth, CEO of GKN Automotive, said: “This is a crucial milestone for GKN Automotive. Working with Tata Technologies is essential in helping us establish this centre in India and draw upon the world-class software engineering talent there.

“Our e-Drive technologies have already put us in a market-leading position, but this programme will help us accelerate our growth, expanding and improving our products and widening our customer base.”

Warren Harris, managing director and CEO of Tata Technologies, said: “Tata Technologies, with a vision of ‘engineering a better world’, enables global OEMs and Tier Ones 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 electric vehicles.”

Despite delays brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the new software engineering centre was completed in just six months and houses a design studio and laboratories. By the end of the year it will be home to over 100 engineers and support staff.
