Make in India: Airbus' global footprint expands with new single source Tier 1 supplier in India

Airbus has signed an agreement with Bengaluru based Dynamatic Technologies Ltd. to be the single source supplier of flap-track beams for the wide body A330 Family aircraft. The agreement is the largest manufacturing contract between Airbus and a private sector company in India and elevates Dynamatic to a global tier-1 supplier.

Dynamatic has manufactured flap-track beam assemblies for Airbus' single-aisle A320 Family on a global single source basis as a Tier-2 supplier, since 2010.

In phase one of the agreement, Dynamatic will assemble all the Flap Track Beams from its Bengaluru facility. In the second phase, Dynamatic will be responsible for the entire supply chain for the Flap Track including sourcing materials, manufacturing and final assembly. With this new business award Dynamatic will be established as a centre of excellence for the production of flap-track beams.

“Dynamatic is proud of its partnership with Airbus, who have invested considerably in development, training, tooling and quality systems and worked closely with us to establish advanced manufacturing capabilities in India, which is truly in consonance with the 'Make in India' program, ” said Udayant Malhoutra, CEO and Managing Director, Dynamatic Technologies Limited.

“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 programs.”

In recent years, there has been a marked increase in Airbus sourcing from India, with more than $400 million worth sourced in 2014.

Airbus has fostered partnerships with India's aviation industry for over 40 years, supporting the sector's sustainable growth. With its Indian activities coordinated through the Airbus India subsidiary, the company employs more than 350 engineers at Airbus India Engineering, Bengaluru and is actively engaged in developing a network of over 35 Supply Chain Partners in the country.
