GE Aerospace draws more Indian business into supply chain
Thursday, 27 October 2022
Indian companies have demonstrated the ability to master the complex manufacturing and special processes required for aero-engine manufacturing while simultaneously maintaining focus on quality, says GE.

GE Aerospace has revealed details of its Indian aero-engine supply chain, which has grown to include 13 companies plus GE's Pune multi-modal manufacturing facility.

The company says that Indian companies are becoming globally competitive for a growing body of high-value, complex aero-engine manufacturing work. Marquee Indian companies including Tata Advanced Systems, Mahindra Aerostructure and Godrej have set up GE aero-engine component production lines. These components are exported from India to GE's engine manufacturing facilities. These growing capabilities have coincided with GE Aerospace's increase in local sourcing spend, which has grown 20 times in the last five years.

GE Aerospace and its Indian partners are in the process of establishing the aero-engine manufacturing infrastructure India needs to achieve its self-reliance goals (locally known as 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat'). "Indian companies have a keen willingness to partner with GE Aerospace and to join the aero-engine marketplace. They have demonstrated the ability to master the complex manufacturing and special processes required for aero-engine manufacturing while simultaneously maintaining focus on quality," says Youngje Kim, vice president, Sales for Asia at GE's military aviation division.

To support its growing Indian aero-engine manufacturing industrial base, GE Aerospace is pursuing an aggressive skill development program for manufacturing workforce in India. Over the past two years, this GE-funded program trained more than 150 manufacturing staff at the various partner organizations, and these trained workers have then gained employment with one of several GE suppliers in India. "GE's Indian skill development program when combined with our growing Indian industrial base is a testament to our support of Make in India," adds Kim.

More than 1000 of GE's aviation researchers and engineers work in India and have deep connections with leading academic institutions, such as IIT-Madras, IIT-Kanpur and IIT-Patna.
