Harman International Industries Inc. and Wipro Technologies, the global IT services business of Wipro Ltd, have launched a joint embedded engineering center in India.

The new Harman India Development Center will operate from Wipro's existing Bangalore and Chennai facilities, complementing an earlier agreement which outsourced Harman's global IT infrastructure services to Wipro.

Beginning with about 250 employee resources through this engagement, Harman plans to grow its resource footprint in India to more than 1,000 by 2011.

The India development center will broaden and optimize Harman's engineering footprint for developing audio and infotainment solutions across the automotive, consumer and professional markets. Wipro will bring a wide range of capabilities to Harman's solutions. Services delivered from the center will include both software development and related hardware engineering for Harman's portfolio. Harman will retain ownership of all intellectual property developed in the center.

"This new venture in India is an important milestone for enriching our portfolio of cutting-edge engineering solutions," said Dinesh Paliwal, Harman chairman and CEO. "Wipro's proven development and project management expertise will complement our company's core audio and infotainment skills to deliver innovative customer solutions and make us more competitive. This expanded capability and capacity will also position Harman to better serve large emerging market opportunities in Asia."

"Wipro's advances in IT and embedded engineering have enabled us to provide high-end solutions to our customers and we are pleased to support Harman's global leadership in premium audio and infotainment," said Suresh Vaswani, joint CEO, IT business and executive director, Wipro Ltd.
