Indian company Godrej Aerospace is considering a stake in manufacturing GE engines

To join the supply chain for the production of the engines that will power the country’s forthcoming domestic fighter jets, Indian company Godrej Aerospace announced on Monday that it will submit a bid to produce modules for GE 414 engines.

The engines will be manufactured jointly by GE and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited under the terms of the agreement, which was announced during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official visit to the United States last month.

The terms of the deal are still being worked out. This happens when airlines are placing record numbers of aircraft orders, raising concerns about an impending industry restructuring. According to Maneck Behramkamdin, deputy vice president and general manager at Godrej Aerospace, Air India and IndiGo have jointly purchased around 1,000 new aircraft.

We need to examine the partnership between GE and HAL. We’ll have to watch how the deal goes through and how much technology is transferred. “In two to three months we will have more clarity,” said Maneck Behramkamdin, deputy vice president and general manager at Godrej Aerospace, during a visit to the plant.

According to Godrej Aerospace, the organization intends to spend 2.50 billion Indian rupees ($30.26 million) to build a facility in Khalapur, Maharashtra, for sophisticated manufacturing, assembly and integration facilities.

Aerospace and defense manufacturers like Airbus and Boeing recently pledged to increase local production and investment as the Modi government pushes for domestic manufacturing and sourcing of local components.
