CNH Industrial is a global leader in agriculture and construction, has officially inaugurated its new India Technology Center in the city of Gurugram, located southwest of the country’s capital New Delhi in northern India. This strategic hub is an integral part of the Company’s global R&D footprint focusing on Product Development and digital solutions.

The Technology Center is the first of its kind in the country for CNH Industrial, equipped with the latest technology and capabilities including an innovation center, vehicle simulation, and a state-of-the-art Extended Reality/Virtual Reality laboratory to support global technology-led projects.

The Center started operations in March 2021 and considering its early returns, the addition of further design development spaces for additive manufacturing; embedded software, data analytics, and User Interface & User Experience (UI/UX) with advanced simulation capabilities are foreseen.

This site will play a strategic role for collaborative efforts with its sister R&D centers around the world to innovate and leverage the leading-edge technology and digital ecosystem in India, with increased efficiencies to benefit customers.

“India’s vast potential, thriving economic development, and highly-skilled talent pool make it an attractive market for the expansion and growth of our business,” said Chun Woytera, President Asia Pacific, CNH Industrial. “In the last 10 years, CNH Industrial has invested significantly in our Indian manufacturing, R&D, supply base, and supply chain development, among other areas.

The new Technology Center will strengthen our vision of making India a technology hub, in addition to an industrial hub, as it provides the relevant competencies to support the Agriculture and Construction sectors”

“CNH Industrial’s India Technology Center will be an important part of the Company's global R&D footprint. The Center will develop leading-edge technologies, including software, embedded electronics, and data analytics, to support both our Indian business and the Company's global product portfolio,” said Marc Kermisch, Chief Information Officer and ad interim Chief Technology & Quality Officer, CNH Industrial.

Raunak Varma, Country Manager CNH Industrial India, commented, “The new Technology Center significantly increases India’s position as a strategic location for CNH Industrial, and provides the technological tools and resources to enhance our ability to serve our customers better.”

Regarding improving their customer connection, Runak Varma said, “Our customers are not found in Delhi. They are found in rural India, and earlier we had to deal with them through our distributor and that’s critical today as well but we are going a step beyond and now connecting with our customers so that we are able to bring to them our innovations, messages, campaigns and tutorial, technical bulletins directly to the customers and that allows us to bridge this gap which is otherwise translated in different ways.

To connect to our customers, we really needed to branch out, that’s where the technology sector comes in. that’s where I think we can reach our customers.”

The Center will also focus on developing core competencies in customer-influenced software solutions and technologies including cloud, embedded, electrification, autonomous, advanced analysis, simulation, automation, and mechanical & electrical design.
