Boeing has partnered with India's Tata Advanced Systems (TASL) today to create a manufacturing center to produce aerostructures for the AH-64 Apache helicopter.
The JV partnership also focuses on opportunities to collaborate on development and selling of integrated systems, the TATA group announced today at the Dubai Air Show.
“This agreement to establish a JV will propel the growth of the Indian aerospace sector by leveraging the competencies of TASL and its supplier eco-system, as well as provide access to Indias world-class manufacturing capability, skilled talent and competitive cost structures,” said S. Ramadorai, chairman, Tata Advanced Systems.
“TASL is one of the select few in the private sector in India undertaking manufacturing and assembly of both aircraft and helicopters. The resulting scale and expertise at which the company now operates makes it well-positioned for large-scale systems integration work in Indias aerospace and defense sector,” said Sukaran Singh, MD & CEO, Tata Advanced Systems.
Tata Advanced Materials has delivered composite panels for the power and mission equipment cabinets and auxiliary power unit door fairings for the P-8I long-range maritime surveillance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft.
Boeing and Tata group companies have established partnerships in India to manufacture aerostructures for Boeings commercial and military aircraft. TAL Manufacturing Solutions is manufacturing complex floor beams out of composite materials for the Boeing 787-9, the most modern aircraft with exceptional environmental and fuel-efficient capabilities. TAL Manufacturing Solutions has provided ground support equipment for the C-17 Globemaster III strategic airlifter.
