United Technologies Corp today said it has opened a new Hyderabad research and design center to enhance the company’s engineering innovation capabilities.
With engineering expertise in heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems (HVAC), fire and security solutions, and elevators, the centre would also facilitate localisation of products, supporting the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, the New York Stock Exchange-listed company said in a statement.
It would house engineers supporting R&D efforts for United Technologies business units including UTC Climate, Controls & Security and Otis.
In the next few years, the 151,000-square foot facility is expected to add additional talent, further enhancing its position as the biggest centre supporting R&D initiatives for UTC Climate, Controls & Security globally, the company said.
Hyderabad R&D center was established in 2002 and has worked in close collaboration with other engineering sites across the globe, it was stated.
