One special feature of the centre is its location on the campus of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, one of the world’s leading universities.

The opening of this site is fully in line with Saint-Gobain’s strategic focus on sustainable habitat. It will support businesses already located in India to accelerate Saint-Gobain’s growth in the region.
