With this expansion, Boeing has nearly doubled its existing facility in Bengaluru. The number of engineers will also double by the end of 2017.

“Boeing’s commitment to growth of capability and capacity in the Indian aerospace sector is commendable,” said Jayant Sinha, Minister-of-State for Civil Aviation. “I congratulate the team on this brand new addition to the Boeing India Engineering and Technology Center and am proud that Boeing is leveraging India’s engineering talent and its expertise for some of the most advanced aerospace products in the world, and developing complex solutions for the world.”

This significant expansion comes soon after Boeing opened its engineering center in January earlier this year, demonstrating Boeing’s commitment to building an innovative, and world-class, competitive aerospace ecosystem in India.

“As a source for innovative and cutting-edge engineering, India offers us tremendous growth potential,” said Pratyush Kumar, President, Boeing India. “This is a winning formula for India and our own global growth strategy for improved productivity, enhanced engineering efficiency and cost advantage, while focusing on quality.”

Recently Boeing announced a partnership with Ministry of Civil Aviation and Air India Engineering Services Ltd. (AIESL) to develop an Aircraft Maintenance Engineers Accelerated Apprenticeship Program. The key objective of the program is to improve the employability of AMEs through training and hands-on experience with actual aircraft.
