PUNE, INDIA: Magna Steyr, an operating unit of Magna International Inc., is expanding its presence in India by moving to a new engineering and research & development office in Pune. The new office currently employs 70 engineers and support staff, and Magna Steyr plans to recruit approximately 200 additional automotive engineers during 2008-09 to enhance its global Engineering and Research & Development functions. 

“The new office in India is a testament to Magna Steyr’s commitment to India and its importance in our global strategy,” said Mr. Guenther Apfalter, president of Magna Steyr. “Additionally, it creates an important base for engineering and research for both our global and local activities.”

Magna Steyr has strategically chosen to grow its presence in the Chakan/Pune region to target the fast-paced automotive growth in the western part of the country, where many local and foreign OEMs have established operations.
