ArvinMeritor has expanded its global presence with the opening of a new technical center in Bangalore, India
. The new facility will support product development initiatives for axles and brakes for the Asia Pacific market as well as engineering needs in North America, South America and Europe.

"Growth in Asia Pacific, particularly India and China, is a key component of our business strategy," said Tim Bowes, ArvinMeritor's vice president and managing director for Asia Pacific. "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 more than ten years ago. This new engineering center accelerates our ability to provide advanced product solutions for on- and off-highway, bus and coach, military and other industrial applications."

The company celebrated the opening of the center last Thursday at a grand opening ceremony.

The new facility features a product design and development department, computer-aided engineering segment and benchmarking and testing area, which will house dynamometer rigs for axles and brakes.

The new center covers 16,000 square-feet of office space and 4,000 square-feet of test lab space. It will house about 100 employees.
