Global au­to­mo­tive sup­plier Vis­teon Cor­po­ra­tion has opened an in­no­va­tion and de­sign cen­ter in Pune, its first in In­dia. Ac­cord­ing to a com­pany re­lease, the Vis­teon fa­cil­ity will fo­cus on cre­at­ing ideas, de­vel­op­ing con­cepts and com­mer­cial­is­ing in­no­va­tive, mar­ket- driven prod­ucts across Vis­teon’s port­fo­lio. Housed within the Vis­teon Engi­neer­ing Cen­ter, the in­no­va­tion and de­sign cen­ter will be staffed by pro­gram man­agers, en­gi­neers, in­dus­trial de­sign­ers, hu­man- ma­chine in­ter­ac­tion ( HMI) ex­perts and mar­ket re­searchers. Its cen­tral lo­ca­tion will al­low Vis­teon to sup­port ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers throughout In­dia. Tim Yer­don, Vis­teon’s global di­rec­tor ( in­no­va­tion and de­sign), said that open­ing a de­sign stu­dio is a sig­nif­i­cant ‘ next step’ in fos­ter­ing and ex­pand­ing re­la­tion­ships with key Vis­teon cus­tomers in In­dia. Yer­don added that the new stu­dio in­te­grates the best prac­tices of the ex­ist­ing net­work of Vis­teon in­no­va­tion and de­sign cen­ters in Ger­many, the United States and China. Vis­teon has been oper­at­ing in In­dia for nearly 20 years. The com­pany has four man­u­fac­tur­ing plants, three engi­neer­ing cen­ters and a joint ven­ture which em­ploys more than 3,000

Vis­teon is a lead­ing global au­to­mo­tive sup­plier that de­signs, en­gi­neers and man­u­fac­tures in­no­va­tive cli­mate, elec­tron­ics and in­te­rior prod­ucts.
