India is one of the R&D centres for Daimler, which it plans to expand further.
With 20 R&D centres around the world, including India and China, Daimler intends to grow its Indian centres even further. With a major R&D centre at Bengaluru and a satellite office at Pune, Mercedes-Benz Research and Development India (MBRDI) wishes to employ a more energetic and enthused workforce in the coming year.
Every year, the Daimler India R&D unit hires around 1,000 engineers and it will continue to hire at the same pace for at least the next two years. With a vision to proliferate the headcount and improve the quality of work done in the research and development centre, Daimler has plans to expand the workforce on a massive scale, by adding 1,700 engineers to make the Indian wing more significant for the firm.
Currently, the sites at Bengaluru and Pune employ the services of about 2,300 engineers who work on emerging computer simulation, telematics, software and designing. A few of these centres work only on styling where the vehicles’ exteriors and other designs are chalked out.
