Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems (TASL) to co-produce aero-structures and collaborate on integrated systems development opportunities, including unmanned aerial vehicles.
The companies intend to access markets jointly for products and platforms developed together by Boeing and TASL.
The framework agreement was signed by Shelley Lavender, president of Boeing Military Aircraft and Sukaran Singh, managing director and chief executive officer of TASL today.
TASL is already on contract to manufacture aero-structures for Boeing's CH-47 Chinook and AH-6i helicopters.
"This agreement with TASL is significant because it demonstrates Boeing's commitment to expanding its aerospace manufacturing footprint in India," Lavender said.
"As we step into our 100th year in business, a new aerospace partnership with India is the perfect milestone to accelerate the momentum we have generated for making in India," said Pratyush Kumar, president for Boeing India. "TASL will produce Chinook helicopter parts in India even before the procurement contract is signed with the Indian government."
"The framework gives us an opportunity to explore the massive potential in India for aerospace manufacturing and make the investments required to grow the industry," said S. Ramadorai, Chairman of TASL. "Boeing's platforms require complex manufacturing processes within a competitive cost structure and we are confident that the partnership will be able to deliver high quality aero-structures out of India."
