ArvinMeritor has officially opened its new technical centre in Bangalore to develop axle and brake parts for commercial and other vehicle applications in Asia Pacific markets.

“Growth in Asia Pacific, particularly India and China, is a key component of our business strategy,” said the supplier’s chief for the region, Tim Bowes.

“To support the growth we have planned in this region, we identified the need to increase the size of our engineering footprint in India – which was established over 10 years ago. This new engineering centre accelerates our ability to [develop products] for on- and off-highway, bus and coach, military and other industrial applications.”

Customers and suppliers include Bharat Forge and Caterpillar Asia. The new centre has about 16,000 sq ft of office space with an additional 4,000 sq ft dedicated to a test lab. About 100 people workthere.

ArvinMeritor also has R&D labs in Troy, Michigan; Cameri, Italy; and Cwmbran, UK.
