We are proud to have been able to set up the India Technology Center so quickly.” ZF firstly announced plans to build the ITC in September 2016. A total of €15 million is planned to be invested in the facility, continuing over the next five years, with 2,500 engineers employed by 2020.

Mamatha Chamarthi, chief digital officer at ZF, added: “The India Technology Center fits seamlessly into ZF’s research and development network and will become a pillar of innovation for the company. The demand for software solutions is growing, and ZF is increasing its capacity in this field exponentially. This will help us support our customers’ growth aspirations in both the global and local markets.”

In collaboration with the global engineering teams, the Technology Center’s activities will focus mainly on electronics and software innovations. At the same time, the ITC is also boosting local research and product development. ZF is taking advantage of the country’s large talent pool to further develop its portfolio of intelligent mechanical systems.
