Motorola has announced its plans to setup one of India’s largest captive R&D facilities in
Bangalore. The 280,000 square feet campus is being setup for the Motorola Global Software Group (GSG) to integrate its two existing centers in Bangalore under one roof and address its expansion plans over the next few years. The new facility will require an investment of US $ 13 million and will be ready by January 2004. Mr. S.M. Krishna, Chief Minister of Karnataka has unveiled the symbolic stone for the new campus.
Speaking at the occasion, Terrence Heng, Senior Vice President & GM, Motorola Global Software Group said, “Motorola prides itself on innovation which is a result of its astute focus on R&D. We were among the first telecom companies to realize India’s software
potential and invest in establishing a development center here. Today, the India development center is an integral part of GSG operations and is developing cutting edge solutions in software and applications for Motorola products and on future technologies such as 2.5/3G mobile handsets, and networks, consumer electronics & others.”
