Strategic Acquisition to strengthen L&T Technology Services’ global position in $4 billion Transportation Engineering Research & Development (RR&D) market


L&T Technology Services to offer high value services to Customers across the board with a new Delivery Center local in North America


L&T Technology Services, the wholly owned subsidiary of $14.3Bn Larsen & Toubro group today announced the intent to acquire the assets of U.S.-based Dell Product and Process Innovation Services (formerly eServ), the Engineering Services division of Dell (“Dell Engineering Services”). The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has approved the proposed transaction. The company is awaiting US regulatory approvals which are expected shortly.

The proposed transaction will significantly drive forward L&T Technology Services’ position as a premier Engineering Services provider by adding local delivery centers in North America. Dell Engineering Services also has delivery centers in Hyderabad and Bangalore in India,. This enhances L&T Technology Services’ ability to offer differentiated technology solutions and full program management services by leveraging global-local talent base at any point in the product development cycle.

Headquartered in Peoria, Illinois, Dell Engineering Services has over 15 years of extensive experience in Mechanical Design & Analysis, Embedded Engineering, Applied Engineering, and Manufacturing Consulting across multiple industries and has long term relationships with marquee clients in North America, especially in the transportation industry.

This proposed acquisition enables L&T Technology Services to consolidate its position as preferred vendor in the USD $4 billion Transportation ER&D market. The acquired assets will enable L&T Technology Services to leverage the customer base and complementary capabilities of Dell Engineering Services along with L&T Technology Services’ broader portfolio of Embedded and PLM offerings, supported by a global sales force. The closure of transaction is expected around this quarter, subject to certain regulatory approvals.

Commenting on the transaction, Dr. Keshab Panda, Chief Executive of L&T Technology Services said “Product engineering is undergoing structural shifts with evolving technologies, shorter development cycles, regulatory demands, and a shortage of skilled talent. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to have a strong local presence in North America where a majority of our clients are based. That along with Dell Engineering Services’ strong expertise in Embedded, and Mechanical Design & Analysis and a history of successful relationships in North America will help us ride the next level of growth
