According to Boeing India, developing a self-sufficient aerospace and defense industry in the nation depends on the availability of domestic special aerospace materials and alloys.
It claimed that the 1st step in securing the supply chain is making essential aerospace materials available, which is in line with the government’s vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India).
Boeing India president Salil Gupte stated, “Public sector units are an important part of Boeing’s supply chain footprint in India. The potential collaboration with MIDHANI will strengthen Boeing’s supply base and increase material sourcing options from India.”
“This would be a key step in building our India supply chain — from raw material sourcing to supplying a finished product. It will further our commitment to bolstering India’s growing aerospace and defense ecosystem,” he said.
