BENGALURU: TUV Rheinland India, a subsidiary of TUV Rheinland Group, Germany, an automotive testing and certification firm, announced on Tuesday that it has set up a state-of-the-art automotive testing laboratory in Bengaluru.
The lab in Electronics City will test and evaluate 2/3/4 wheelers along with their Electronic Sub-Assemblies (ESA). The firm is in the process of investing half-a-million euros (`3.6 crore) on a lab meant for testing auto components. Auto homologation is set to be a major component of TUV Rheinland.
The automotive testing lab will play a significant role in facilitating vehicle manufacturers and their vendors to test their products to continuously improve the quality, as well as meet the local regulations.
They now not only can meet local but also international standards such as in the European Union (EU). The lab operates 24x7 to reduce the turnaround time required for testing. This in turn helps speed up the marketing stage of newly developed or re-engineered products. This lab can be used by vehicle manufacturers and their sub-system suppliers during product development in order to fix engineering bugs.
“We have ample opportunity to serve the designers and manufacturers located in the southern and western parts of India,” said Kalyan Varma, vice-president, Products, TUV Rheinland India.
