MTS Systems Corporation, a global supplier of high-performance test systems and sensors for composites and metallurgy, has establishing the MTS India headquarters in Bangalore.

This location, along with the Chennai office that opened in early 2016, will provide a stronger connection to customers in the region, the company says.

‘India has proven to the world that it is not simply a location for cost effective manufacturing,’ said Dr Jeffery Graves, CEO and president of MTS. ‘The quality of engineering talent available, combined with continued funding of ambitious large scale projects, has made India a thriving hub for technological innovation.’

‘It is expected that by 2020, India will be the third largest automotive market globally, with over 10 million passenger vehicles being sold annually. In tandem, billions of dollars of public sector and private sector investments are currently being made in aerospace. These dynamics are making the country a hotbed for engineering activity,’ added Umesh Krishnappa, president of MTS India.
