Rolls-Royce opens new, state of the art, manufacturing and training facilities in Singapore

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, today officially opened its largest facilities in Asia, at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore. Constructed on a 154,000 square meter site it is the first of its kind to bring advanced aerospace high-value manufacturing technology to Singapore. The Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus includes an Assembly and Test Unit; a Wide Chord Fan Blade manufacturing facility; an Advanced Technology Centre; and a Regional Training Centre.

The Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus represents an investment of over S$700 million and will significantly increase the Group's manufacturing capacity and proximity to customers in the Asia Pacific region. The investment will create over 500 new jobs, bringing the number of people employed by Rolls-Royce in Singapore to over 2,000. It is expected that the Group's value-added contribution in Singapore will increase from 0.3% of GDP currently, to 0.5% of the GDP projected in 2015.

Singapore Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, officially opened the Rolls-Royce facilities, accompanied by Sir Simon Robertson, Chairman, Rolls-Royce plc and Mike Terrett, Chief Operating Officer, Rolls-Royce plc, Cedric Foo, Chairman of Jurong Town Council (JTC), and Leo Yip, Chairman of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) at an event attended by dignitaries, customers and partners.

Leo Yip, Chairman of EDB, said: "We congratulate Rolls-Royce on the successful completion and opening of its Seletar campus. This marks a major milestone in the development of Singapore's aerospace industry, and we are delighted that Rolls-Royce has made such a significant commitment here. Manufacturing is fast emerging as a key engine of growth for our aerospace industry. We will continue to partner with industry leaders such as Rolls-Royce to build sophisticated manufacturing capabilities in Singapore."

Mike Terrett, Chief Operating Officer, Rolls-Royce plc, said: "This fantastic facility gives Rolls-Royce additional capacity to deliver our record order book. Importantly, this also marks an important new phase of our relationship with Singapore. For the first time outside our traditional home facilities we will produce our unique Wide Chord Fan Blades and assemble and test large commercial jet engines. The Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus brings together state of the art technologies, advanced manufacturing techniques and highly skilled people to produce some of the most advanced aero engines in the world."
