Godrej Aerospace to pitch for manufacturing GE 414 engines modules

Godrej Aerospace will be pitching to manufacture modules of GE 414 engines and become part of the supply chain for the work horses that will power the Indian Air Force’s Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Mk II combat jets.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard has already been signed between GE Aerospace and DPSU Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) to jointly produce F414 jet engines for the Indian Air Force.

Notably, the company already exports some key components to engine makers General Electric and Rolls-Royce.

Besides, Godrej Aerospace is also in talks to make aircraft parts for suppliers to Airbus and Boeing.

This comes amid rising anticipation of an oncoming industry churn as airlines place record orders for planes.

To be noted, Air India and IndiGo airlines have together ordered nearly 1,000 new planes which means that 2,000-2,500 engines would at some point need maintenance.

It is worth noting here that India has been pushing for local manufacturing as well as indigenous sourcing of components for aerospace and defence.

In recent years, a number of companies, including Airbus and Boeing, recently committed to Make in India more.

And, now with so many aircraft coming into India, Airbus and Boeing need to augment their supply chain. And, thus would be requiring Tier-II two suppliers for which Godrej Aerospace is already pitching for.  

Furthermore, the company is also planning to invest Rs 250 crore to build a new facility in Khalapur in Maharashtra for advanced manufacturing and assembly and integration facilities.
