N K Minda Group, the US$ 403 million technology leader in the Indian Auto Components Industry, has opened a state-of-the-art design centre in Taiwan, after procuring all necessary licences from the Taiwan Government. The opening of the design centre in the city of Tainan is strategic to Minda’s self reliance initiatives, for which it has invested approximately US$ 783,000.
With the opening of this centre, N K Minda Group has extended its engineering wing for designing and developing automotive lighting products. The design centre will give a necessary fillip to the group’s expertise in optical and mechanical designing of automotive lamps, in addition to capitalising on the strategic advantage of Taiwan as an established and high quality, yet cost effective, destination for tooling.
Nirmal Kumar Minda, CMD of N K Minda Group, noted, “Setting up a design centre in Taiwan is a major initiative for us and has been taken to interface with Taiwan supplier community and program managers. It will give us an easy access to product designing capabilities, tool making and machine development.”
This centre in Taiwan will make designing cost competitive, while ensuring faster turnaround times, which will help the company to service the Indian automobile market proactively by creating their own capability in Designing & Simulation. In addition, the Design Centre will act as an interface between Taiwan suppliers and program managers, while also sourcing new suppliers for design, simulation, tooling, fixtures, Special Purpose Machines, raw material and other parts.
