CNH Industrial strengthens its presence in India with state-of-the-art Technology Center

CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI/MI: CNHI), a global leader in agriculture and construction, has officially inaugurated its new India Tech­nology Center in the city of Gurugram, located southwest of the country’s capital New Delhi in northern India. This strategic hub is an integral part of the company’s global re­search and development (R&D) footprint, focusing on product development and digital solutions.

The Technology Center is the first of its kind in the country for CNH Industrial, equip­ped with the latest technology and capabilities including an innovation centre, vehicle simulation and a state-of-the-art extended reality/virtual reality laboratory to support global technology-led projects. The Center started operations in March 2021 and, considering its early returns, the addition of further design development spaces for additive manufacturing, embedded software, data analytics, and user interface and user experience (UI/UX) with advanced simulation capabilities are foreseen. This site will play a strategic role for collaborative efforts with its sister R&D centres around the world to innovate and leverage the leading-edge technology and digital ecosystem in India, with increased efficiencies to benefit customers.

“India’s vast potential, thriving economic development and highly skilled talent pool make it an attractive market for the expansion and growth of our business,” said Chun Woy­tera, President Asia Pacific, CNH Indus­trial. “In the last 10 years, CNH Industrial has in­vested significantly in our Indian manufacturing, R&D, supply base and supply chain development, among other areas. The new Tech­nology Cen­ter will strengthen our vision of making India a technology hub, in addition to an industrial hub, as it provides the relevant competencies to support the agriculture and construction sectors.”

“CNH Industrial’s India Technology Center will be an important part of the company’s global R&D footprint. The centre will develop leading-edge technologies, including software, embedded electronics and data analytics, to support both our Indian business and the company’s global product portfolio,” said Marc Ker­misch, Chief Information Officer and ad in­terim Chief Technology & Quality Officer, CNH Industrial.

Raunak Varma, Country Manager, CNH In­dustrial India, commented, “The new Tech­no­logy Center significantly increases India’s position as a strategic location for CNH In­dustrial, and provides the technological tools and re­sources to enhance our ability to serve our customers better.”

The centre will also focus on developing core competencies in customer-influenced soft­­ware solutions and technologies, including cl­oud, embedded, electrification, autono­mo­us, advanced analysis, simulation, automati­on, and mechanical and electrical design.

Located in the Gurugram SEZ (Cyber City), the Technology Center today employs over 100 people, and is ramping up operations by hiring through a rigorous and discerning talent search that prioritises diversity.
