Commenting on the inauguration of the technical centre, Vijay Pandey, regional president, Automotive Aftermarket, Bosch, said, “In the Automotive Aftermarket sector, Bosch is among the highest generators of employment. However, given India’s insufficient labour pool there is a need to build on the country’s employability level, the same has also been identified by the Government of India which has initiated the Skill India programme. To address this concern Bosch has collaborated with Bharath University in Chennai to offer quality training programmes. Our joint vision is to ensure the youth of India is able to build a sustainable future.”
