TMETC celebrates 10 years and looks forward to the future

Tata Motors European Technical Centre's (TMETC) staff recently came together to celebrate the company's 10th anniversary, commemorating the special occasion with an internal event and a company address by Cyrus Mistry, Chairman of Tata Sons.

Held on the University of Warwick campus on 1st September, staff took part in several 'friendly' inter-department competitions. One of the Electrical and Energy Storage teams kept themselves firmly grounded to be crowned tug of war victors while the 'Hand of God' Vehicle Integration team, comprising several skilled footballers, convincingly won the inflatable table football.

Mr Mistry joined in the celebrations on Friday 25th September, addressing the company and awarding certificates of appreciation. Joined by other senior Tata Motors executives, Mr Mistry reflected on TMETC's achievements to date and the key role TMETC plays in the delivery of Tata Motors' new product cycle plan. He finished by looking forward to TMETC's future and its new home at the National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC).

The company, which was founded by Sir Ratan Tata in 2005 as a UK-based centre of excellence for automotive design and engineering, has grown in size and capabilities since its foundation, completing several government-backed projects and third party work. Today, TMETC's expertise covers the full range of vehicle development, working in a matrix structure that is linked to mirror organisations within its customers.
