Leading automotive interior
components supplier International Automotive Components (IAC) has inaugurated
its new regional and global engineering centre in Pune, Maharashtra. The
2,415-square-meter (25,569-square-foot) facility officially opened on June 16,
2017 and will focus on application development engineering to support the
vehicle interior needs of domestic and global customer programmes. This opening
increases IAC’s presence in India to six locations throughout the country and
28 design, technical, and commercial centres around the world.
With the ability to
accommodate up to 150 employees, the dedicated engineering facility will
provide design engineering and application development support to domestic
vehicle manufacturing programmes for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs),
such as Mahindra and Tata, as well as to IAC locations worldwide.
The facility opening frees up
approximately 650 square meters (7,000 square feet) of space at IAC’s existing
Chaklan II facility, which will be repurposed to expand its manufacturing
operations providing additional production capacity and product offerings.
“The newest IAC facility in
Pune will further enhance our global integrated engineering solutions focused
on the development of exceptional automotive interiors,” said IAC Senior Vice
President of Asia Operations Gajanan Gandhe.
