Chennai, May 7 (IANS) The US-based heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) firm Trane Inc launched its global design centre here to support the company’s Indian market as well as its global research and development (R&D) wing, said a top official. The Chennai centre will also have validation and verification capabilities.

Located in Ascendas IT Park, the centre will initially focus on controls embedded and application software, Trane’s global engineering and technology vice-president Prakash Bedapudi told reporters here Wednesday.

The Chennai centre is expected to exchange knowledge, expertise and best practices with Trane’s design centres in other parts of the world.

The centre will have a total capacity to seat 200 engineers and the company is in the process of staffing it.

“Being located in a region with a large supply of engineering talent, the centre can help accelerate new feature additions to existing products and reduce the time needed for new product introductions. In addition, it can help the company rapidly adapt its products to the demands of the dynamic and fast growing emerging markets,” Bedapudi added.
