Post-deliveries Textron looks forward to Aero India
As reported by SP’s M.A.I. earlier, the Indian Air Force recently began taking delivery of Textron Defense CBU-105 sensor fuzed munitions for its Jaguar jets. The company has announced its participation in Aero India 2013, taking place from February 6-10 at Air Force Station at Yelahanka, Bengaluru.
To mark Textron’s first big military sale to India with customers and partners, Textron Systems’ new President and Chief Executive Officer, Ellen Lord, will be present at the show. Lord, who was named CEO in October 2012, previously served as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Textron Defense Systems. “Aero India 2013 is a wonderful opportunity to discuss emerging requirements, and engage with potential customers on how Textron Systems’ products and solutions can best meet them,” she said. “Textron Systems has established strong relationships with the Indian Government, armed forces and security agencies, as well as industry partners, and we are vested in growing that presence even more. Key industry meetings like Aero India 2013 and our ongoing activities as part of the larger Textron enterprise, including Textron India Private Limited, are critical to achieving that goal.”
