Dana breaks ground for India tech center

  • 16-Dec-2010 03:11 EST

Dana Holding Corp. recently broke ground for a $20 million technical center in Pune, India, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2011. The new facility will provide in-region engineering, design, testing, and analytical support for each of the supplier’s primary markets—automotive, commercial vehicle, and off-highway. The Pune technical center will be part of Dana India Technical Centre Pvt. Ltd., a wholly owned Dana subsidiary, and will encompass 125,000 ft2 (11,600 m2) on a 4.75-acre (1.9-ha) lot adjacent to Dana’s existing off-highway axle facility. The center will house engineering design activities and a test laboratory equipped to support Dana’s Light Vehicle Driveline, Commercial Vehicle, Off-Highway, and Power Technologies product groups. It will include performance, structural, environmental, oil flow and lubrication, and metallurgical testing, as well as NVH testing capabilities. “With as many as 550 engineers on site when fully operational, the new technical center will more than double Dana’s engineering presence in India,” said Dana’s Managing Director of India, BD Singh. “Along with serving the local market, it will also provide an essential complement to our existing engineering resources at technical centers strategically located across four continents.”
