Background in brief
L&T Technology Services Expansion; Any kind of modern engineering work in the domain of – oil & gas, power generation, defence, aerospace, outerspace, automobile, urban infrastructure, railways and all types of construction activities heavily rely on the support of software – starting from the concept to the commissioning end, including the design and simulation. One can conclude that the modern day manufacturing solidly rests on the foundation of IT and software.
Again, the software for each of the activities under various domains, has to be either built ground up OR configure (tweak) the existing software to the requirement by the engineers. The design and development of such a complex software which can support the engineering work at every stage in itself is a big challenge, and only experienced/ hands-on engineers can do that.
Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has been offering engineering services over the last 8 decades with offices dotting all over the globe. L&T created an internal IT division called L&T Technology Services (LTTS) in 2009 exclusively for the development of such softwares and for supporting the engineering activities of the parent company. However, in 2013 the division was hived off into a separate company to offer technology (engineering) services to L&T and other corporates across the globe. The LTTS subsequently went public by listing in National & and Bombay stock exchanges.
LTTS has 15 major engineering research and development (ERD) centers all over the world and in India its centers are located in Mumbai, Bangaluru and Mysuru. Notably LTTS has also got into the development of Artificial Intelligence and cloud enabled solutions to industries of late.
Expansion of Mysuru Development Centre
In Mysuru, LTTS operates its R&D centre from Larsen & Toubro SEZ located at the Hebbal industrial area. As part of their expansion plans, LTTS is coming up with a mega structure in their SEZ just next to their existing unit. It is touted to be a major engineering company in Mysuru. Structure shall comprise of Ground plus 5 floors with provision for 2 extra floors in future. Going by the building dimensions it seems there would be at least 25,000 SQM + floor area, possibly accommodating over 1000 employees.
Their upcoming unit shall render the following services but not limited to CAD/CAE/CIM, Embedded Engineering, Plant Engineering, Design Automation, Asset Information Management, Document Management Services, Engineering Process Support & Engineering Change Management, and Technical Authoring, e-Cataloging among others.
In fact L&T says it’s focus is to “deepen and widen” the engineering services offered by its centers in Mysuru, Bangaluru and Mumbai.
The L&T Technology Services expansion of Mysuru center is the outcome of such a plan.
