- Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlights Boeing-Dynamatics’ commitment to “Make in India” at Aero India inaugural address
- Boeing-Dynamatic partnership to boost advanced manufacturing in Indian aerospace sector
Bengaluru, February 18, 2015 - Bangalore-based Dynamatic Technologies Limited has produced the first set of aft pylon and cargo ramp assemblies for Boeing’s CH-47F Chinook helicopter. The commitment of Boeing and Dynamatic to “Make in India” was highlighted by Indian Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi during his inaugural address at Aero India 2015 in Bengaluru.
“In September 2014 Dynamatic Technologies and its collaborator Boeing inaugurated a plant in India to manufacture critical parts for a Boeing helicopter that is sold globally,” the prime minister said. “I understand that it was a day after Make in India was launched. I am pleased to learn that the first set of parts is ready...”
“In a competitive world where our customers are increasingly demanding more for less, this delivery is a milestone that demonstrates the capability we are scaling-up with our supply-chain partners, right here in India,” said Prat Kumar president for Boeing India. “We set up a new assembly line with Dynamatic Technologies soon after the Prime Minister formally launched the ‘Make in India’ program in September 2014. Going forward, our participation will continue to accelerate with support from government and our industry partners,” remarked Kumar.
“The production of major aerostructures for Boeing’s CH-47F helicopter is a major accomplishment, and is a significant milestone for the Indian aerospace industry,” said Udayant Malhoutra, CEO and managing director, Dynamatic Technologies Limited. “We are proud of our partnership with Boeing, who has invested considerably in development, training, tooling, and quality systems working closely with us in establishing advanced manufacturing capabilities in India, which is truly in consonance with the ‘Make in India’ program.”
“The Chinook is an advanced helicopter requiring complex manufacturing processes, and this Make-in-India capability demonstrates that Indian companies can deliver high standards of quality and productivity within a competitive cost structure that is essential for the aerospace sector,” said Dennis Swanson, vice president, Boeing Defense, Space & Security India.
Dynamatic’s relationship with Boeing began in 2010 with the award of a contract to supply mission and power equipment cabinets for the P-8I maritime reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft. In 2013, Boeing placed its first H-47 Chinook helicopter contract in India with Dynamatic for aft-pylon and cargo ramp assemblies.
