Office Space for Aeronautical and Automotive Clusters

Our business centers in Bangalore house hundreds of companies from all the major industries and clusters. It shows that the city’s economy is not just based on IT services and tech or Internet startups. To showcase this diversity, we’re highlighting the vibrant local economies and supply chain clusters that thrive in the vicinity of our business centers.



It’s important for us, because it’s these suppliers (the small and medium businesses that are vendors for the large manufacturers) who are our customers that rent office space.

What I’m going to do here is create individual Google maps showing the supply chains that have come up around the locations of the large manufacturers such as Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd, UTC Aerospace Systems, and Toyota Kirloskar.

Then we’ll take a look at how we provide office space for rent designed to meet the fast-changing needs of this interconnected aeronautical and automotive industry clusters of manufacturers, suppliers, and mobility tech startups.

1. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited cluster in Bangalore.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), headquartered in Bengaluru, is a public sector unit owned by the Government of India, under management of the Ministry of Defence. With more than 32,000 employees, HAL manufactures helicopters, aircraft, jet engines and aeronautical / aerospace components across facilities in seven cities, including Bangalore.

As per the latest available data, HAL generated Rs. 17,406 crore ($2.6 billion) in annual revenue, which resulted in a net income of $400 million. The economic impact of HAL’s operations in Bangalore, however, is much wider. The number of indirect jobs and economic activity through suppliers alone would be enough to match the GDP of a mid-sized Indian city.

The map below shows HAL’s largest campus in Bangalore, near Indranagar, surrounded by a large cluster of aerospace companies that are part of the HAL supply chain.

2. Aeronautics cluster in East Bangalore.

Now let’s look at a very similar map, with lots of overlap with the previous one. This one is for East Bangalore, stretching the HAL cluster over to Whitefield (UTC Aerospace Systems) on one side, and over to the Airbus and Boeing offices on the other side, nearer to KR Puram. This map, as you can see below, shows a triangle of aerospace companies in a cluster formed at the intersection of Whitefield, Mahadevpura and KR Puram.

3. Toyota Kirloskar supply chain in Bangalore.

The Toyota Kirloskar plant in Bidadi and associated Toyota facilities and suppliers take up a sizeable part of the Bidadi Industrial Area’s automotive cluster on the outskirts of Bengaluru. Here’s a map that shows them (data from Toyota Kirloskar Suppliers Association).

As you can see from the map above, the biggest cluster is around Toyota Kirloskar’s Bidadi plant itself. But there are some more in the Peenya industrial area, and some more in the Mahadevpura-Whitefield cluster.

This last set of suppliers in the Toyota Kirloskar supply chain is what is most interesting, because they’re part of the Whitefield auto and aeronautical/aerospace clusters. Their operations, talent and component / parts / material requirements are close enough that the automotive and aeronautical industries come together in joint clusters serving both industries.

It’s the brave new world of connected mobility and autonomous vehicles they’re moving towards, and this is where we come into the picture as office space providers for a next-gen supply chain cluster.

4. Office space for automotive and aerospace suppliers and tech startups.

The Evoma Hotel and Business Center on Old Madras Road is ideally located on the highway, easily accessible to the aerospace and auto clusters in East Bangalore. HAL Stage 2 is just a few minutes away, as is the aerospace cluster shown above in Whitefield, which is close to our business centers in EPIP and Borewell Road.

It’s ideal office space for suppliers and manufacturers who want to set up a branch office close to their own factories and their customers and suppliers.

Lucep B2B sales appThat is why customers such as Airbus and Lucep have landed in India, and are taking up space at Evoma. We’re now getting office space enquiries from auto and aerospace companies and startups that want to increase sales and be a part of these growing clusters.

The advantage, apart from the location, is that the startup and SME ecosystem we have in-house at Evoma provides infrastructure and technical assistance for aerospace and auto tech startups who are working on developing connected mobility, autonomous (driverless) vehicles, etc.

In addition to being close to and a part of these industrial clusters, you also have the chance to work directly with auto tech startups such as Lucep that are providing technology solutions to automotive manufacturers and dealers, and the opportunity to get connected to the world’s largest companies such as Airbus.
