Vadodara headquartered IT firm L&T Technology Services (LTTS) has been selected to provide engineering services for Tenneco unit DRiV. 

Tenneco is an American automotive components original equipment manufacturer that also develops aftermarket ride control and emissions products. DRiV is a Tenneco business unit for ride performance and motorparts.

As part of the contract, LTTS will set up a HUB Development Centre to provide DRiV with additional engineering capacity in conventional damper and component development, a statement said. The company will also help DRiV modernise and upgrade engineering tools and create a global benchmarking framework for product lifecycle analysis.

The HUB Development Centre will provide a hybrid, unified engineering business model for supporting established domains such as mechanical, product lifecycle management (PLM) and digital engineering, it added.

“LTTS will develop design automation and back office support tools that will help increase efficiency for our global engineering organization,” Nik Endrud, group vice president and general manager, DRiV Ride Control, said.

“We expect LTTS’ services to strengthen our focus internally on developing and launching innovative suspension technologies in our engineering centers of excellence in Europe and the US, as well as offer an efficient capacity management service to flex to the growing needs of the global suspension market for conventional damper and component engineering,” he said.

Shailendra Shrivastava, global head of ground transportation at L&T Technology Services said the new engagement will help set the stage for them to create engineering tools to support DRiV engineers in developing intelligent suspension technologies and innovative passive solutions.

In December 2019, LTTS signed a multi-million dollar deal with an undisclosed global plastics, chemicals and refining manufacturer. It also won an avionics contract from Airbus around the same time.
