Rockwell Collins recently opened a new, expanded facility in Bangalore, India, that bolsters the company’s presence in the country. The company has signed a 15-year lease for the Bangalore building, which will initially house 30 employees but is expected to reach 100 employees after one year of operation. Rockwell Collins continues to expand in India as the country’s growing economy and aerospace industry presents new opportunities for the company.
“The opening is a reflection of our commitment to India, as well as the increasing demand for services from our India Design Center (IDC) in Hyderabad,” said Sunil Raina, Managing Director of Rockwell Collins India. “We chose Bangalore because of the high concentration of engineering talent there and the fact that it is an aerospace hub.”
Rockwell Collins’ design center in Hyderabad augments the company’s existing engineering and information technology capabilities. The IDC was created to help the company expand its global footprint, meet the needs of customers in the region, and increase access to high-quality technical talent. The IDC is dedicated to product development for global markets, with initial work focused on the design of display applications for commercial and military customers and Flight Management Systems. The design center currently has 630 employees, and the company plans to continue to grow the facility.
Rockwell Collins’ facility in Gurgaon, Haryana, near New Delhi, houses the business development, program management, systems engineering, and related support activities for net-enabled communications, navigation, surveillance, displays, sensors, simulation and training, and integrated systems and subsystems for airborne, ground, and maritime applications.
