Since that time, Cyient has grown considerably and remains a trusted service provider to UTC with over 1,600 engineers engaged on UTC projects worldwide.
"UTC has been a strategic customer and investor in the company,” reiterated Cyient CEO Krishna Bodanapu. “Their decision to divest stood testimony to the growth of the company over the years and justified the prudence of the investment made therein. The return on the investment corroborated the impeccable credentials of Cyient to create value for its investors and we look forward to a bright future."
Commenting on the development UTC Senior Vice President of Operations, Peter Longo said, “The decision to reduce UTC’s stake in Cyient demonstrates the trust and confidence we have in Cyient as a strategic supplier.
