Software services major HCL Technologies, on Friday, said it had signed a five-year multi- million dollar deal with U.S.-based Manitowoc Company for becoming its global engineering partner for crane operations.

HCL will be Manitowoc’s global engineering partner for the crane operations spanning the Americas, EMEA, and Asia/Pacific regions, a statement said.

Capital goods manufacturer Manitowoc and HCL would also set up a global engineering centre in Pune to support Manitowoc’s design centres, and accelerate its new product development initiatives in emerging regions such as India, China, and Brazil, it added.

Through the design centre, HCL offers a complete spectrum of engineering services to Manitowoc Cranes to produce blueprints for new and innovative crane models.

The centre would extend engineering design services support to Manitowoc’s key engineering hubs and innovation centres in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Germany, France, and Italy, it said. “Partnering HCL enables us to further strengthen the core tenets of our strategy — to provide superior products and capitalise on global growth opportunities,” Manitowoc Cranes Senior Vice-President, Global Engineering, Jens Ennen, said.
