Engineering (Design & Process) outsourcing -the next wave in India ?

A recent article headed 'Pune beats Bangalore in hosting design centres ' hints an increasing demand for Indians abroad-especially those not restricted to IT!!
While Bangalore still hosts most 1,000 strong centers of companies, in terms of engineering design companies, perhaps Pune has a lead. The city plays host to roughly over a dozen of dedicated engineering design companies, excluding the application engineering centers of older MNCs and out-sourced software engineering design centers.
The engineering design that is being talked of here is for global products, and not just the application engineering or homologation of an existing product being "Indianised", reported the Economic Times today.A case in point is that of German automotive major Volkswagen (VW) rather that just waiting for its 230 acre, euro 415 million Chakan manufacturing plant to be ready by '09, is already in the process of setting up a procurement and design engineering presence in anticipation of its assembly operations.
The prominent among the numerous dedicated design centers in Pune include
- Emerson Design Engineering Center (EDEC), a part of the $17 billion conglomerate Emerson, -
- tractor major John Deere's global technology center,
-the engineering design center of the $11.1 billion industrial major Eaton Corporation,
- the $1 billion Carraro group, Italian manufacturer of driveline systems for agricultural tractors and other segments in the automotive market,
-or the Spanish auto component manufacturer Groupo Antolin,valued at euro 1. 4 billion.
Dana Corporation, Magna Steyr, Cummins Research and Technology India, Honeywell Automation, International Trucks and Engines and NACCO Materials Handling Group Inc (NMHG), a lift truck manufacturer that does not sell its products in India are among the others present in the city.
Mahindra and Mahindra has restructured its business on its way to reaching a billion USD enterprise by 2010- by offering a bouquet of services- engineering, strategic sourcing and manufacturing of auto components at a global scale!

Any guess on the kind of talent needed for driving this growth??

There is no doubt that Pune is having more engineering design companies, may be because of more manpower available in this particular feild.

Often we forget the little guy, the SMB, in our discussions of the comings and goings of the Internet marketing industry. Sure there are times like this when a report surfaces talking about their issues and concerns but, for the most part, we like to talk about big brands and how they do the Internet marketing thing well or not so well.
