Telephonics Corporation, a subsidiary of Griffon Corporation, launched their joint venture partnership, Mahindra Telephonics Integrated Systems, as the first private sector aerospace and electronics manufacturing facility in India.
The facility represents an important milestone for India’s rapidly expanding private defense industry. The business will focus on the development and manufacture of leading-edge radar technology. Initial production of the first proprietary products commenced at the facility in December 2013.
Telephonics’ long-standing and highly respected OEM customer base has shown particularly keen interest in partnering with Mahindra Telephonics on the development and execution of offset programs in India.
“Telephonics’ combination of world-class technology and manufacturing capabilities, combined with Mahindra’s renowned manufacturing, corporate governance and market presence are proving to be very compelling for our customers in the U.S. and Europe,” explained Telephonics President and CEO, Mr. Joseph Battaglia. “Our joint venture has also begun planning for additional development facilities, including a larger manufacturing facility and the development of an outdoor radar and antenna test range.”
Sharing Mr. Battaglia’s enthusiasm, Mr. S.P. Shukla, President – Group Strategy & Defence Sector & Member of the Group Executive Board, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. stated, “The opening of the Prithla facility is a critical step in transitioning American defense manufacturing capabilities to India. Being able to support Ministry of Defence requirements locally in India provides a multitude of benefits, including cost efficiencies, decreased turnaround times and enhanced logistical support.” He further added that “Mahindra Defence Systems will now have a 3-dimensional capability encompassing the land, sea and air domains. Synergies between the different defence and Mahindra Group companies will also be leveraged.”
