L&T Technology Services has been selected to provide engineering services for Tenneco’s DRiV original equipment (OE) Ride Control business group.
LTTS, a global engineering services company, will set-up a HUB Development Center to provide DRiV with additional engineering capacity in conventional damper and component development.
The HUB Development Center will provide a hybrid, unified engineering business model for supporting domains such as mechanical, product lifecycle management (PLM) and digital engineering.
LTTS will also work with DRiV to modernize and upgrade engineering tools and create a global benchmarking framework for product lifecycle analysis.
DRiV Ride Control’s engineering teams play a crucial role in designing and developing new- and next-generation suspension technologies that help our OE customers differentiate themselves in a competitive and fast-changing market.

“LTTS will develop design automation and back office support tools that will help increase efficiency for our global engineering organization,” Nik Endrud, group vice president and general manager, DRiV Ride Control, said.
DRiV Ride Control believes that LTTS’ services will help strengthen its focus internally on developing and launching innovative suspension technologies in engineering centers of excellence in Europe and the US.
“At LTTS, we look forward to taking up challenging opportunities in engineering programs pertaining to product lifecycle management and this new engagement will help set the stage for us to create engineering tools to support DRiV engineers in developing intelligent suspension technologies and innovative passive solutions,” Shailendra Shrivastava, global head of Ground Transportation at L&T Technology Services, said.
