Esterline to supply Korry switches and knobs to Rossell Techsys in support of the Boeing Company

Esterline, global leader in aerospace technologies, has been awarded a five-year contract to supply its Korry-branded control devices to Rossell Techsys for final assembly into control panels for the Boeing AH-64E Apache military attack helicopter program. Based in Bangalore, India, Rossell Techsys is the Aerospace and Defence Division of Rossell India Limited. It is an AS-9100 and Boeing-certified build-to-print manufacturer that was named a 2015 Boeing Supplier of the Year award winner.

Previously, Esterline supplied Korry switches and control knobs to Boeing directly for these AH-64 panels, but as part of a Boeing initiative, the panels will now be built in India. The Korry parts, manufactured in Everett, Wash., will be shipped to Rossell Techsys, who in turn will deliver complete panel assemblies to Boeing's facility in Mesa, Ariz. for new production and remanufacture of AH-64E helicopters. In addition to the switches and knobs provided earlier, Esterline will now also deliver Korry 5/8-inch magnetic latch switches, which can be actuated, locked and released remotely from other control units in the cockpit.

"We are looking forward to our ongoing partnership with Esterline, whose Korry line of precision control products has a respected history on Boeing aircraft going back 80 years," said Prabhat Kumar Bhagvandas, Chief Executive Officer at Rossell Techsys. "With this arrangement, we can provide Boeing with the capability they seek while maintaining continuity in the reliability of individual components already used in the AH-64 cockpit."
