Tata Technologies opens new European Innovation and Development Centre
Engineering services giant Tata Technologies is opening a new European Innovation and Development Centre (EIDC) today in Warwick, UK.
The £20 million facility reflects Tata’s ongoing success across Europe, and will house the company’s engineering support services, two advanced engineering labs, and a state-of-the-art R&D centre to develop Tata’s capabilities across Automotive, Aerospace, and Industrial Machinery sectors. This facility will stand as the European headquarters and follows the creation of delivery centres in Paris and Gothenburg earlier this year.
Tata’s new EIDC will create an additional boost for the region in the form of 200 new STEM jobs for design engineers and programme managers at all levels. The company will utilise its relationships with local universities in employing new skilled staff; it has close ties with Coventry University which runs the Ada Lovelace scheme that supports women studying STEM topics. Tata also works with Warwick University and is looking to collaborate with Birmingham, Aston, and Loughborough universities as partners for recruitment and training.
The opening of the EIDC today will be marked with an opening event attended by Tata Technologies’ international leadership, representatives from local authorities, clients, community stakeholders and employees.
