Airbus has recently contracted Aequs Aerospace, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aequs Private Limited, to supply over 100,000 titanium machined parts for the A320neo (new engine option) programme, as a further boost to the âMake in Indiaâ programme.
These parts will be delivered to the Airbus plant in Toulouse, France where they will be assembled onto the pylon structure, used to mount engines on the aircraft wing. This supply contract positions Aequs for substantial growth as a significant Tier-1 supplier to Airbus. Aequs will perform the work at its state-of-the-art 100,000 sq. ft. (approx. 9,300 m²) aerospace machining facility at the Special Economic Zone in Belagavi, Karnataka.
âThis contract for specialized titanium components underpins our commitment to expand our aerospace supplier partnerships in consonance with âMake in Indiaâ, which is at the heart of our strategy. We are proud to have Aequs as one of Airbusâ key Indian Tier-1 suppliers,â? said Srinivasan Dwarakanath, President of Airbus Division in India.
The recently commissioned Airbus facility at Aequsâ Belagavi SEZ employs the latest in machine technology with quality processes that meet or exceed Airbus standards. Aequsâ history of delivering quality products coupled with its ability to invest has ideally positioned it to support Airbusâ India sourcing strategy.
