SP's MAI - - SP’S EXCLUSIVES -

In­dian firm Dy­na­matic Tech­nolo­gies Ltd (DTL) has been awarded a first sup­plier con­tract in the coun­try to man­u­fac­ture the aft py­lon and cargo ramp as­sem­blies for Boe­ing’s model CH-47F Chi­nook, a plat­form that the IAF will be or­der­ing 15 of shortly. Late last year, the IAF chose the CH-47F over the Mi-26T in its heavy-lift he­li­copter com­pe­ti­tion, with a con­tract likely to be signed this fis­cal.

“This con­tract is an­other demon­stra- tion of our com­mit­ment to part­ner­ing with In­dia’s aero­space in­dus­try to bring the best lo­cal tal­ent and tech­nolo­gies to Boe­ing and in turn to our cus­tomers,” said Boe­ing In­dia Pres­i­dent Pratyush Kumar. Ear­lier in March 2010, DTL won a con­tract award to sup­ply the mis­sion and power equip­ment cab­i­nets for the In­dian Navy’s P-8I long-range mar­itime re­con­nais­sance (LRMR) air­craft. “Boe­ing’s high-qual­ity prod­ucts and unique pro­cesses make it a ter­rific cus­tomer for us to have,” said Udayant Mal­houtra, CEO and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Dy­na­matic Tech­nolo­gies Limited. “This or­der gives us the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in Boe­ing’s global sup­ply chain at a whole new level.”
