Bangalore, India – Continental AG inaugurated a new 13,000-square-meter facility to expand its R&D capabilities in Bangalore, announced the company on 22 Jan.
With a €12.4-million investment and around 1,000 engineers, the new Technical Centre India (TCI) facility is set up to meet the “increasing demand for engineering and software development skills to support global R&D projects as well as local customers”, said the company.
Eight R&D labs will be housed in the new facility, it added.
Speaking at the occasion, Helmut Matschi, president of the Interior Division and member of the executive board of Continental AG, said: “Continental has invested significantly in the tech centre since its inception, a confirmation of our commitment to India.”
Tech Centre India was established in 2009 and has expanded rapidly in scale and capability, noted Christian Senger, senior VP of automotive systems and technology at Continental.
“Today, our engineers in India are developing one channel ABS solutions for two wheelers alongside highly sophisticated technologies for domains such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems,” he said.
