TechnoPro, a major engineering and tech  staffing and service company from Japan, has announced its intention to join the burgeoning electric vehicle (EV) landscape in India through an investment of $10 million. The funds are geared primarily at research & development (R&D) in the EV infrastructure domain.

Based out of Tokyo, TechnoPro specialises in staffing and recruitment services, supporting tech firms across the globe with sourcing talent. The firm offers professionals with skills in mechanical design, electronic design, embedded software development, information systems, and a number of others.

TechnoPro’s clients hail from research-based domains such as pharmaceuticals and academia to manufacturing and high tech, among others. More than 14,000 engineers with a variety of skills work with TechnoPro to offer services and solutions to clients across the globe.

Now, another sizeable chunk is set to join this global talent pool. As part of a drive to enter India’s EV market, TechnoPro plans to recruit as many as 10,000 engineers in the Indian market over the next 3 years. These engineers will work with a variety of clients, especially those working in the EV charging, battery swapping and infrastructure domains.

Commenting on the new drive, Director and Managing Executive Officer at TechnoPro Shimaoka Gaku said, “The company has ambitious plans of expanding in India by setting up a Global Delivery and Technical Innovation Center in Bengaluru and to ramp up employment. By end of 2022-23, it has set a target of hiring 10,000 plus engineers and other professionals.”

Jayant Kumar, who has recently been appointed to run TechnoPro’s India operations, added, “the increasing demand for smart mobility has compelled us to look for high-end engineers. India is the only country that can help in keeping an excellent balance between demands and supply for EVs.”

Infrastructure is among the primary barriers currently standing in the way of EV adoption in India, given that consumer sentiment is on its way to embracing the new paradigm. Despite the fact that the current rate of EV progress is short of government targets, investments such as these are likely to accelerate the process significantly.

Market analysts have long been calling for stakeholder cooperation to drive EV production, and TechnoPro is now set to join this group, as the production levels in India continue to rise. TechnoPro already has a considerable presence in India, with a R&D centres in Hyderabad, Pune and Bengaluru. This will act as a solid base to work towards its goals.
