Global engineering firm Tata Technologies has officially opened its multi-million pound headquarters in Tachbrook Park.
The company, which has invested £20 million into the new building close to the border of Leamington and Warwick, officially opened their new European Innovation and Development Centre (EIDC) on July 12.
The new building will house Tata Technologies’ engineering support services, two advanced engineering labs, as well as a modern R&D centre that will further develop the company’s capabilities and growth opportunities in key sectors including Automotive, Aerospace and Industrial Machinery. The facility, which will be the company’s European headquarters, can house between 600 to 650 staff and there are currently 400 already at the site. The investment will also create 200 jobs in the automotive, aerospace and machinery sectors for design engineers and program managers, which will range from graduate to more senior roles.
Tata Technologies will use its relationships with regional universities to help fill new roles.
The opening of the office was marked with an event, which was attended by Tata Technologies’ international leadership, representatives from local authorities, clients, community stakeholders and employees.
“The opening of the European Innovation and Development Centre today is a coming of age for Tata Technologies, showcasing our commitment and confidence in our UK operations for the long term.
Our investment in the EIDC will ensure we continue to meet our UK and international clients’ evolving demands for innovation.”
Warren Harris, Chief Executive
