FOXBORO: The London headquartered company Invensys, a global leader in production technology, is planning to expand its Hyderabad and Mumbai centres in India.

Currently sharing facilities with Baan India, the Invensys India Development Centre (IDC) has more than 140 developers supporting product and solutions development and testing for four different business areas.

Invensys operates in over 60 countries.

"It is expected that in the coming year, at least two additional Invensys businesses will add resources to the centre to greatly improve its development capacity," said a statement from the U.S. company office here.

The sale of Baan to Cerberus Capital Management and General Atlantic Partners has necessitated a separation of Invensys and Baan operations.

Transition plans are in place and both parties are working closely to ensure that there is minimal interruption during this period.

"For us, it is business as usual as we continue to recruit and hire new talent to meet our growth requirements and strengthen our organisation in India," said Chris Harding, vice-president of development for Invensys Production Management.

"Invensys is relying on us to keep the IDC functioning at the highest level possible to ensure we meet our customer commitments."

Added Philip Whalen, Invensys Chief Technology Officer: "The India Development Centre is a critical element of our global technology and product development operation. The dedication and quality of the talent in the IDC is excellent. We will continue to build on the current foundation and expand into new technologies and products in the coming year."

During a recent visit to India, Harding had said that IDC had proven to be of great value to Invensys.

"Now our businesses have the confidence to fully integrate the IDC into supporting the entire lifecycle of our products and solutions," he said.
