L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS) is an engineering services company based in Vadodara, Gujarat. It operates as a subsidiary of the conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T), and is listed on the National Stock Exchange and the Bombay Stock Exchange.[2][3] The company also has offices in Edison, New Jersey,[4] and Munich,[5] and a subsidiary company Esencia, based in San Jose, California.[6][7]


L&T Technology Services was founded in 2009 as L&T Integrated Engineering Services. In its first year, the company generated $70 million in revenue. Initially, it only operated as the engineering arm of the L&T[2] and in 2013, as a result of the L&T's strategy, the parent company was split into "nine verticals and six subsidiaries", of which this was one.[8][9] It began to expand its engineering services as a developer of new technology solutions[buzzword] for other companies under a new brand name L&T Technology Services (LTTS).[2]

In September 2016, LTTS had its initial public offering in the National Stock Exchange, making it the second L&T subsidiary to go public.[10][11] A. M. Naik, the current group chairman of the parent company remained chairman of the subsidiary until his retirement in October 2017.[9][7] Keshab Panda was named as the CEO and managing director [2] and S N Subrahmanyan as vice chairman of the company.[12][13]

In 2017, L&T Technology developed a set of personal safety gear that is based on cloud-enabled technologies. The system includes a set of "helmets, gloves, jackets and shoes that have sensors capturing [the wearers] performance, and sending it to a centralized database on the cloud."[14]

In June 2017, L&T Technology completed the acquisition of the Esencia, a San Jose, California-based engineering firm involved in development of "wireless connectivity solutions, perceptual computing, Internet of Things and advanced silicon products" for $27 million.[6][15] In July, the company was upgraded to Group A of the Bombay Stock Exchange.[16]
