The Technocentre engineering center 

This research and development center in Guyancourt (France) works to drive innovation and reduce design and development costs.

 

The Technocentre works closely with decentralized engineering centers, in different markets and in different production sites. It drives projects with global reach.

 

In addition, Renault can count on a network of four "satellite" design centers, fully integrated into the group’s global Design function processes: Seoul (South Korea), Bucharest (Romania), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Giheung (Korea) and Mumbai (India).


A Renault engineering center in Romania 

The RTR (Renault Technologies Romania) was created in 2007.
This regional center handles development of vehicle and powertrain projects. Once the development stage is complete, vehicles are manufactured in the region’s plants and marketed in Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey, Russia and North Africa.

 

RTR has offices in Bucharest (design offices), Pitesti (engineering services at body assembly and powertrain plants) and Titu (Test centre scheduled for startup in the second half of 2009).
