More than 1000 engineers could find work at TRW's planned tech center in Shanghai.

With workspace for more than 1000 engineers, a new technical center being planned by TRW Inc. for Shanghai will be among the company's largest worldwide. Slated to open in 2013, the tech center will house research and development, engineering design and application, and testing and validation activities across all of TRW's product lines—and will be able to directly provide its customers with technical and commercial services, according to the company. "With over 26 million vehicles predicted to be built in the year 2016 in China, the automotive industry needs to be prepared to support this tremendous growth," said TRW President and CEO John Plant. "Our tech center will support our customers with their ambitious plans." Construction is scheduled to begin this fall.
