Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, opened a new global technology development centre in Bangalore, India.
The site will act as a global hub for the development and delivery of new digital technologies that will be used by Smiths Detection’s customers across the aviation, defence, urban security, and ports and borders industries.
Furthermore, the site will also be used as a hybrid office for the over 100 strong digital team, who work with colleagues across the globe, including at key sites in Singapore, France, Germany, the UK, and the USA.
“We’re thrilled to be officially opening this site in Bangalore, which will be a pivotal delivery centre for the next generation of digital security technologies” said Vice President Technology and Programme Management, Matt Clark. “The opening of this site demonstrates our commitment to growing our business across multiple sectors and geographies, allowing us to further advance our global mission of making the world a safer place.”
The opening was held virtually so that members of Smiths Detection’s international team, who were unable to attend due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, could join.
In addition to the new office in Bangalore, Smiths Detection’s India headquarters as well as its global training site are both situated in Gurugram.
