Today, at a special ribbon-cutting ceremony, Bombardier Aerospace announced the official inauguration of its Engineering Service Office located in Bangalore, India. The Bombardier Engineering Service Office began operation in December 2011 and currently employs approximately 20 people.
The new Engineering Service Office, which will house approximately 50 aerospace engineers by the end of 2013, will support Bombardier Aerospace’s in-production and in-development aircraft programs by providing assistance to both the company and the more than 400 engineers at its partners’ offices in the areas of complex engineering structure design, advanced stress analysis and project management services.
“Bombardier Aerospace is a truly global company with customers, partners and suppliers the world over, and it is essential to the success of our business that we grow our presence in the international markets,” said Jean Séguin, Vice President, Quality, Achieving Excellence System, Engineering and Manufacturing, Bombardier Aerospace. “This group of highly skilled engineers will support projects related to our in-development and current aircraft programs while strengthening our already successful relationships with our partners at Mahindra-Satyam, Tata Consultancy Services and Capgemini. This continued investment in the region will allow us to take advantage of local expertise in a market that is becoming increasingly important to Bombardier.”
