Saab has signed new Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with three Indian aerospace manufacturers for the manufacture of Saab on commercial aerostructures to the Gripen fighter and other defence-related products in the Saab portfolio.
Saab signed the MoUs with Dynamatic Technologies Limited, CIM Tools Private Limited and Sansera Engineering Private Limited. The MoUs with CIM Tools and Sansera expand the existing working relationships with Saab on commercial aerostructures to the Gripen fighter and other defence-related products in the Saab portfolio, the company said in a statement on the second day of Aero India 2019 Airshow Thursday.
The MoU with Dynamatic is a starting point to explore future joint opportunities in commercial and defence-related aerostructures work, including Gripen.
"Saab's Aerostructures business unit has had a successful relationship with CIM Tools and Sansera for several years. Based on that experience we see these two companies can add great value to our Gripen 'Make in India' offer," says Mats Palmberg, VP Industrial Partnerships and Head of Gripen for India. "The MoU with Dynamatic adds the capabilities of complex airframe assembly to Saab's 'Make in India' offer for Gripen," Palmberg said.
