New Delhi: The Kistler Group has been awarded the contract for instrumentation of three crash centers, for the Indian automobile industry, by National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRIP), an autonomous project under Department of Heavy Industries. The deal worth almost twenty million Swiss francs (1.079 billion Indian rupees).

The crash centers in Chennai (GARC), Pune (ARAI) and Delhi (iCAT) will be built and equipped over the next 18 months.

The instrumentation of these centers was put out to international tender. The Kistler Group's bid submitted against strong global competition won on both technological and cost grounds.

The Indian automobile industry is accelerating, with over-average rates of growth at home and abroad. To enable these carmakers to hold their own on the world market, their products have to meet the international environmental and safety standards. For this reason the Indian government set up the National Automobile Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRIP), which will establish three crash centers to the latest standards in Chennai, Pune and Delhi.

Kistler Group's acquisition of MSC Automotive, Corrsys-Datron and KT Automotive has particularly strengthened the group's position as a provider of turnkey measurement solutions for the automobile industry.

"The award of this sizable contract to Kistler confirms the correctness of its acquisition strategy and documents the considerable business potential in emerging markets such as India and China," said Rolf Sonderegger, CEO of the Kistler Group."We are shaping ourselves into a system partner for the automotive industry and are offering customer solutions and services from a single source."

The contract was signed by Saurabh Dalela (Director NATRIP) and Rolf Sonder-egger (CEO Kistler Group).
