Bangalore: Wipro Technologies, the global IT Services business of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT) today announced the launch of 'Tarang', a product qualification and compliance certification facility, in Bangalore. Former President of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam inaugurated the facility in the presence of Azim H Premji, Chairman, Wipro Ltd. The investment in this facility is expected to be around $8.5 Million.

Tarang will provide a one stop for solution offering consultancy, pre-compliance testing and certification services for various geographies in the areas of EMI/EMC, mechanical, thermal, acoustic, safety and reliability.

Speaking at the inauguration, Dr. Kalam said, "Certification is the key to competitiveness. Wipro has developed a system which will enable production of the most competitive product along with the certification process. This will definitely go a long way in making the Indian industry more competitive, especially when the turnaround takes place."

"I’m glad to note the Tarang configuration includes EMI testing as a very prominent part of the testing facility at Wipro. Such sophisticated facilities where earlier confined to ISRO and DRDO ," he added.

Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Limited, said that India has been woefully inadequate in terms of investment in R&D. With around 18,000 engineers involved in product design and development, Wipro is stepping up investments in R&D. 

Commenting on the launch of Tarang, Girish Paranjpe, Joint CEO & Member of the Board, Wipro Limited, said, "Wipro’s agenda to make Innovation more purposeful and customer centric just got stronger with the launch of Tarang.  We are confident that this world class facility will further enhance our ability to provide fully integrated product development solutions for our customers. Our goal is that we should have return on investment in 3 to 5 years time."

He said that Tarang would be available as a lab on hire for other product development companies also.

The facility is equipped to test electronic products in the Aerospace, Automotive, Computing, Consumer Electronics, Industrial automation, Medical electronics and Telecommunication industries.

"With over 25 years of system design experience behind it, this facility is in line with our R & D strategy and is reinforcing our leadership. End to end product testing and consulting under one roof will enable customers to resolve complex cross-functional issues thereby achieving faster rollout of their products in the global market." said V.R.Venkatesh, Senior Vice President, Product Engineering Services, Wipro Technologies.
