Thales, India, India Office, New Delhi, Bengaluru, Digital Intelligence, Cloud Security, Fintech news, Fintech India, Technology Centre, Thales has extended its Indian presence with the launch of its new office in Bengaluru. Yannick Assouad, Executive Vice President, of Avionics, Thales officiated the ceremony, accompanied by Ashish Saraf, VP and Country Director for Thales in India.

The new building will serve as an extension of Thales’ Engineering Competence Centre (ECC) in Bengaluru, inaugurated in 2019, in support of the group’s ramp-up plans in the region and country. This ECC is a centre in India focusing on software and hardware capabilities in civil and defence businesses, serving Thales’s global needs. Since its launch, the centre has played a significant role in job creation and skill development in India, growing to over 500 staff.

Thales invests close to €4 billion globally in R&D every year. This ECC, along with an additional center based in Noida, forms one of the Group’s three major engineering competency center hubs.

Thales’ engineering teams in Bengaluru are contributing to high-value-added systems in the fields of aerospace and defence, including Air Traffic Management, complex avionics systems, cockpit, flight management and connectivity systems, radar software, airborne Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance tactical management systems, among others.

The facility will provide a modern, sustainable, and open office work environment. Drawing inspiration from Dravidian architectural forms and Brahmi script, the site is a fusion of contemporary design and traditional aesthetics. The new office is designed to be a disabled-friendly facility, with smart working spaces, abundant greenery, and power-saving features, in line with Thales’ global societal and environmental commitments.

“We are proud to mark yet another expansion of our footprint in India with this new facility in Bengaluru. As we grow our engineering set-up in Bengaluru together with that in Noida, we continue to develop in-country capabilities by leveraging our global expertise and local talent, fostering new opportunities and innovations for Indian and global customers,” said Ashish Saraf, VP and Country Director for India, Thales.
