Precision Engineering in Demand
June 13, 2019
Precision engineering and manufacturing company Aequs Aerospace (Hall 2B E170) has come a long way since the last Paris Air Show in 2017. Having charted a road map to 2025, the company's growth plans are ambitious.
“Broadly they include a focus on machining, a tripling of present work, expansion of capacity, the introduction of new products, and identifying new packages for the 226-T helicopter to be manufactured in India,” Aravind Melligeri, chairman and CEO, told AIN.
Technology transfer through global strategic alliances and an ecosystem in India that has an integrated supply chain—providing machining, forging, surface treatment, and aero assemblies in a single location—has reduced timelines of deliveries. Having new machining capability and become the largest such supplier in the country, Melligeri said, “This makes us a one-stop shop solution, bringing confidence to the customer. We want to grow faster as the opportunity grows [globally].” Aequs is believed to be adding more than 100,000 hours of work capacity.
