Knorr-Bremse Technology Center India Pvt. Ltd.

Knorr-Bremse is the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles, with annual sales totaling almost €6 billion (2015). In 30 countries some 25,000 employees develop, manufacture, and service; braking, entrance, control, and energy supply systems, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and driver assistance systems, as well as technology and components for powertrain and transmission control.

As a technology leader for more than 110 years now, through its products the company has been making a decisive contribution to greater safety on road and rail. Every day, more than one billion people around the world, put their trust in systems made by Knorr-Bremse.

The brand Knorr-Bremse has received the best employer award for the last 4 years in succession.

Knorr-Bremse Technology Center India (KB-TCI) was founded in 2013 to leverage Indian talent, diversity and engineering skills. From a humble beginning of around 50 engineers then, KB-TCI has grown to nearly 400 engineers, offering more than support services. Some of the products and services offered to Knorr-Bremse group customers are entirely carried out from our location at Pune.

Due to increased responsibility placed on KB-TCI, the company decided to enhance and broaden the skills of its employees, not only in engineering but also in related business domains. I am proud to state that we found an able partner in Indo-German Training Centre (IGTC), to offer appropriate courses for this developmental journey. We had an overwhelming response from our employees who were too eager to forego their weekends! I have seen them enjoy the course and its curriculum and start to think ‘out of the box.’ They are slowly moving from being technical managers to being business and techno- commercial managers. I see the transformation from ’Yes, I will do’ to ‘Why not this too?’ Kudos to IGTC and its staff for providing us with this breath of fresh air.

Congratulations to IGTC on its 25th Anniversary. I wish all the associates the very best and a successful engagement with IGTC.
