ThyssenKrupp this week launched its new technology centre in Pune. Their Technology Center Analytics and Software Engineering (TCASE) was opened with the aim of establishing India as a knowledge hub.
The technology centre will focus on offering high-end research and development services in the fields of the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, data analytics and software engineering.
“Our Company is going through a journey of digital transformation. I believe the Technology Center at Pune will raise the overall digital quotient of ThyssenKrupp through its thriving ecosystem of talented engineers, repute universities and emerging start-up base.” CTO, Reinhold Achatz said in a statement.
ThyssenKrupp India, CEO, Ravi Kripalani added, “Cooperation across traditional and technology boundaries is becoming increasingly important, and we believe with our diverse technology base we are well positioned to capitalise on it.”
According to the company’s statement, the TCASE will play a key role in ThyssenKrupp’s digital transformation journey by serving as a partner and supporting digitalization projects for the group’s business areas globally.
“I am confident that our strong engineering tradition combined with our technological capability and dynamic team will help us meet the digitalization needs of the group and establish TCASE as a provider of smart products and solutions in engineering and digital domains,” Head of Centre, Rohit Gupta said.
Earlier this year, ThyssenKrupp had inaugurated their multi-purpose facility for elevators in Pune. The facility played a role as a distribution centre and as training centre apart from manufacturing elevators.
