Larsen & Toubro Technology Services (LTTS), a subsidiary of engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T), has unveiled its new design engineering centre in Rockford, Illinois (US), to serve digital requirements of the aerospace and defense markets.
The 130-seater centre of excellence is LTTS’ sixth design centre in the United States, the Vadodara headquartered company said in a statement.
“Through this investment, we will leverage our expertise in systems engineering and deliver differentiated value to our customers,” said Keshab Panda, CEO and MD, LTTS.
The centre was inaugurated by Stan Kottke, VP, electric power systems, Collins Aerospace, Senator Dave Syverson and Tom McNamara, mayor, Rockford City, IL, in the presence of Keshab Panda, CEO & MD, LTTS and other industry officials.
The design centre specialises in the development of high-performance engineering solutions for global aerospace and defense technology players. The team in the design centre will have over 100 engineers with expertise in digital engineering, systems engineering, and avionics design, the statement added.
The company offers aero engine, aerostructure and systems, avionics, air traffic management and digital transformation solutions in the aerospace sector.
“Rockford has always been at the forefront of manufacturing and aerospace. We’re thrilled that L&T Technology Services will continue to build on that legacy by creating a hub for new digital opportunities for the aero and defense industries and further bolstering the business environment in this region,” said Tom McNamara, mayor, Rockford.
LTTS offers consultancy, design, development and testing services across the product and process development life cycle. The company has over 15,900 employees spread across 17 global design centres, 28 global sales offices and 49 innovation labs as of June 30 this year.

In July, LTTS partnered with US-based United Technologies Corporation (UTS) for Collins Aerospace to provide an aerospace-based intelligent solution.
