The agreement, which is the largest manufacturing contract between Airbus and a private sector company in India, will see Bengaluru-based Dynamatic become the single source supplier of flap-track beams for the A330.
Dynamatic has manufactured flap-track beams for Airbus’ single-aisle A320 aircraft since 2010.
“India is one of the fastest aviation growth markets in the world and it’ll be one of the largest in the next 20 years. Airbus industrial partnerships in India span across engineering, manufacturing, R&T and services. Airbus partnership with Dynamatic signifies our commitment towards developing the Aerospace Supply Chain in India thereby supporting thousands of highly skilled jobs in India,” said Dr Srinivasan Dwarakanath, managing director of Airbus India.
“Through these partnerships, we can proudly claim that there’s a bit of ‘Made in India’ in all our aircraft programmes.”
In recent years, there has been a marked increase in Airbus sourcing from India, with more than US$400 million worth sourced in 2014.
