SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

Cob­ham and Tata Ad­vanced Sys­tems Lim­ited (TASL) have agreed that TASL will man­u­fac­ture for Cob­ham’s world – lead­ing 5th gen­er­a­tion air-to-air re­fu­elling equip­ment at TASL’s fa­cil­ity in Hy­der­abad, In­dia.

The part­ner­ship also re­in­forces TASL’s con­tin­ued fast – paced growth to­wards be­ing a pre­ferred part­ner to the global aero­space & de­fence in­dus­try. As a leader in the aerostruc­tures in­dus­try in In­dia, TASL has suc­cess­fully un­der­taken com­plex global tran­si­tion pro­grams for Lock­heed Martin and Siko­rsky Air­craft Cor­po­ra­tion and has re­cently an­nounced a new part­ner­ship with RUAG Avi­a­tion for the Do 228-212 NG struc­tures.

‘’ This busi­ness agree­ment has been im­ple­mented as a key el­e­ment of our busi­ness strat­egy to es­tab­lish a world class sup­ply chain foot­print in In­dia to sup­port long term pro­gramme de­liv­ery obli­ga­tions, in­clud­ing pro­posed In­dia air-to-air re­fu­elling re­quire­ments. This multi-mil­lion pound en­gage­ment marks the begin­ning of a strate­gic long term ar­range­ment with TASL,” said David Squires, Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer of Cob­ham.

“The re­la­tion­ship be­tween Tata and Cob­ham is a tes­ti­mony of new-gen­er­a­tion part­ner­ships with key tech­nol­ogy lead­ers from across the globe are part­ner­ing with In­dia and the Tata group for their global cus­tomers. In Cob­ham, we see a com­mon­al­ity of val­ues, which are a foun­da­tion for fu­ture col­lab­o­ra­tion. We seek to de­velop this into a strate­gic part­ner­ship wherein we would be part­ners in the growth and suc­cess of Cob­ham and its cus­tomers.” said S. Ra­mado­rai, Chair­man–Tata Ad­vanced Sys­tems.
