With the goal of expanding its technical capabilities and footprint in the India region, Troy-based Inteva Products, a global Tier 1 automotive supplier of engineered components and systems, has opened its new India Technical Center.
The 43,000-square-foot center, located in Bangalore, India, houses advanced engineering support, design, development, durability testing, and functional testing teams. These teams focus on developing and launching advanced technologies in roof systems, closures, and motors & electronics for Inteva’s global customers.
“Our India Technical Center will serve as a center of expertise for the region, and we are pleased to bring our global customers this additional investment in our world-class technical capabilities,” says Lon Offenbacher, president, founder, and CEO of Inteva.
The center employs more than 200 research and development engineers, with plans for additional growth.
Since it was founded in 2008, Inteva, which employs more than 15,000 people in 18 countries, has tripled its global footprint. By the end of this year, the company will have opened new sites in five countries. In addition to Bangalore, Inteva has expanded its presence in Rychnov, Czech Republic; Oradea, Romania; Guanajuato, Mexico; and Zhenjiang, China.
