West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc., a leading global company providing innovative solutions for injectable drug administration, opened a new state-of-the-art Digital Technology Center (DTC) in Bengaluru, India.
This new business space will act as a global center of excellence for West’s Digital and Transformation (D&T) team, as well as teams that are based in Eschweiler, Germany and Exton, Pennsylvania.
The new center is a vital part of the company’s ongoing efforts to improve customer engagement by way of digital manufacturing, digital marketing and automations to enhance external and internal business processes.
The Bengaluru center spread across 17,000 square feet in the heart of city’s Outer Ring Road technology district.

The teams at DTC will work globally in order to support West’s efforts in digital marketing, e-commerce, digital manufacturing, roll-out of SAP S/4 HANA (ERP) cloud business suite and product development, including embedded solutions such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and smart devices.
