Agratas, Tata Group’s global battery business, and Tata Technologies, a global product engineering and digital services company, have announced their collaboration to scale Agratas’ product development and enterprise systems, supporting the design, development and manufacturing of best-in-class battery solutions.
Tata Technologies has over 25 years of expertise in product development, digital engineering, digital manufacturing and product supply chain. Leveraging Tata Technologies’ expertise, Agratas will accelerate its product development timelines, including integrating battery cells into modules and packs across multiple applications to match customer requirements.
Tata Technologies will develop the digital business architectures to support the production of best-in-class battery solutions at Agratas’ gigafactories in India and the UK. Agratas is setting up 40 GWh of battery manufacturing capacity in the UK. With over £4 billion of investment from Tata Group, the gigafactory is set to start production in 2026, creating 4,000 green tech jobs in the UK and thousands more in the wider supply chain. In India, Agratas aims for a production capacity of 20 GWh initially.
“This new alliance embodies the cross-Tata Group mission to develop a holistic eMobility ecosystem that will advance the production and adoption of Electric Vehicles in India and worldwide. With battery cell production due to commence in 2026, the collaboration is helping to propel Agratas’ anchor customers, Tata Motors and JLR, towards a fully electrified future,” stated a joint release by Agratas and Tata Technologies.
Tom Flack, CEO of Agratas, said, “Teaming up with Tata Technologies.. will help us [Agratas] to leverage its expertise in electric vehicle engineering, including competitive design, packaging and integration of battery packs that are critical for the performance of our customers’ products, from next-generation electric vehicles to energy-dense storage solutions. Our collaboration with Tata Technologies also maximises inter-Group synergies and business excellence, showcasing the strategic benefits of being part of the Tata Group.”
Warren Harris, CEO and managing director, Tata Technologies, said, “This collaboration will help us strengthen our capabilities around the design and integration of battery pack solutions into battery electric vehicles and also help Agratas accelerate the industrialization of its gigafactories in the UK and India, enabling it to deliver competitive battery solutions to its customers.”
As Agratas scales up its operations, Tata Technologies is also helping Agratas to mobilize resources by facilitating the recruitment of highly skilled individuals, enabling onboarding, and supporting employee lifecycle activities during this critical growth phase. These resources span roles across the battery solution value chain, including corporate, operational, and research functions, reaffirming the depth and breadth of the collaborative engagement.
