Tech Mahindra will have access to relationships that this iconic designer has nurtured with the best in the world over its 85 year history, including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Peugeot. This spells opportunity for Tech Mahindra to influence their product design and engineering through the eyes of Europes best design house.

Engineering Expertise
Pininfarina's expertise in engineering machines is exposed by the brilliant products that have come out of their shelves. It is this excellence that will be elemental in complementing Tech Mahindra's existing portfolio of engineering services that include delivering solutions across aerospace, defense, automotive, industrial equipment and transportation products.

The Core Business
Pininfarina's core values and business strategies will remain untouched. Paolo Pininfarina will stay the chairman, and the workforce will continue to function out of the existing workplace.
