Rockwell Collins has opened a new, expanded facility in Bangalore, India, that bolsters the company’s presence in the country.

“The opening is a reflection of our commitment to India, as well as the increasing demand for services from our India Design Center (IDC) in Hyderabad,” said Sunil Raina, managing director of Rockwell Collins India. “We chose Bangalore because of the high concentration of engineering talent there and the fact that it is an aerospace hub.”

Rockwell Collins announced it has signed a 15-year lease for the Bangalore building, which will initially house 30 employees. The company expects that number to reach 100 in just one year of operation.

The opening marks the continued expansion in India for Rockwell Collins as its growing economy and aerospace industry continues to present new opportunities for the company.

Rockwell Collins design center in Hyderabad, India augments the company’s existing engineering and information technology (IT) capabilities. The IDC was created to help Rockwell Collins expand its global footprint, meet the needs of customers in this region, and increase access to high-quality technical talent. This center also enables Rockwell Collins’ engineering and IT teams to work collaboratively around the world and around the clock to develop innovative solutions.

Rockwell Collins’ IDC is dedicated to product development for global markets, with initial work focused on the design of display applications for commercial and military customers and Flight Management Systems. The IDC currently has 630 employees with plans to continue to grow the facility at a steady rate.

Rockwell Collins’ facility in Gurgaon, Haryana, near New Delhi houses the business development, program management, systems engineering and related support activities for net-enabled communications, navigation, surveillance, displays, sensors, simulation and training and integrated systems and subsystems for airborne, ground and maritime applications.
