India Technology Center

India Technology Center (ITC) of ITT Corporation started it's operation from November 2007 in Vadodara, a city with around 1.5 million population in western India. This is also the first major facility of ITT in India. The center is providing engineering and new product development services to support emerging markets for ITT's commercial businesses - Indusrial Process, Control Technologies, InterConnect Solutions and Motion Technologies. The center, currently with 15+ engineers, is focusing on localizing products where needed to meet the region's unique needs and assisting the Value Centers in achieving their growth goals in emerging markets. "One of the primary roles for the India Technology center is to localize products so we can have a growth in the Asia Pacific region," - said Rabindranath Burman, Managing Director of ITT India.

ITC, a centerpiece of ITT's emerging markets strategy, has been gradually developing deep competencies in several core technology areas of Industrial Process. ITC is a conglomeration of various Value Centers of ITT. Already three VCs (IP, CT and ICS) are present under this umbrella.

The center is taking advantage of a deep pool of local experienced engineers and strong intellectual property rights protection to create a global design resource focused on meeting the needs of local customers, while adding unique skills and depth to ITT's global engineering capability.
In the recent 4 years, it has achieved a modest success in supporting value centers in product de-featuring, value engineering, product extension, and expansion. Three projects have been received the prestigious ITT's "Engineered for Life" award till today.

"I am getting excellent reports on the work being done by the ITC team on various projects. We are very pleased with the efforts by the ITC team and the quality of work," said Charlie Cappellino, Executive Sponsor of ITC and VP- Research, Development & Engineering of ITT Industrial Process.
