Apollo Tyres Ltd has announced the launch of a Digital Innovation Centre in Hyderabad in partnership with the Telangana government. This will be the second Digital Innovation Centre for Apollo Tyres, after the first one in London.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard was signed on Tuesday on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum at Davos. The DIC will drive significant efficiency gains and agility in the company's supply chain, in addition to transforming manufacturing efficiencies and helping achieve sustainability goals.
Telangana's Principal Secretary, IT and Industries & Commerce, Jayesh Ranjan and Apollo Tyres Ltd Vice Chairman and MD, Neeraj Kanwar signed the MoU in the presence of Telangana IT and Industries Minister K.T. Rama Rao, and Telangana's Special Secretary, Investment Promotions and External Relations, Dr E. Vishnu Vardhan Reddy.

"Therefore, Telangana and Hyderabad are the perfect choice for Apollo Tyres' Digital Innovation Centre," he said. "Digitalisation is one of the key pillars for achieving our FY26 vision; setting up of this Digital Innovation Centre, along with the one in London, is part of our digital strategy," Kanwar said.
