Mumbai: CG, part of the US$ 4 bn Avantha Group, has set up a new global research and development (R&D) facility, named 'Aryabhatta', at Kanjur, Mumbai. This facility will house CG's Electronics Development Centre (EDC) and Global Technical Training School.

"As we evolve from being a manufacturing company to a 'products and solutions' company, the Electronics Design Centre will play a vital role in shaping the future of technological innovations, for the domestic market as well as global markets. I am confident that this centre will bring us recognition as a technology-driven organisation," said S.M. Trehan, Managing Director, CG.

The centre has state-of-the-art infrastructure in simulation, EMI/EMC (electromagnetic interference, / electromagnetic compatibility) testing, electronics product evaluation, and rapid prototyping to name a few.

"The resources of 'Aryabhatta' and its highly skilled manpower will contribute immensely towards CG's vision of developing and marketing smart and intelligent products and services," said Gautam Thapar, Chairman & CEO, Avantha.

CG's Electronics Development Centre, which was established around a decade ago, designs and develops technology to suit the requirements of the company’s businesses, viz.; power systems, industrial systems and consumer products.

Five of the twelve laboratories at CG’s R&D centre are certified with ISO: 9001:2008, ISO 27001:2005 and NABL accreditation. The EDC team comprises highly specialized personnel in the field of research and development, most of whom are postgraduates and doctorates, working alongside reputed academic and industrial consultants.

"The institute reinforces CG's commitment to enhancing manpower skills, which are the principle assets of any dynamic and innovation-driven organisation," said Trehan, while speaking about the Global Technical Training School.
