GE, India’s Tata to Manufacture Jet Engine Components

GE Aviation, a division of Boston-based General Electric, and Tata Advanced Systems Ltd., entered into a partnership to manufacture components for engine-maker CFM International at a new factory that they will build in Hyderabad, India. (CFM International is a joint venture between GE Aviation, and Safran Aircraft Engines of France.)

The components made in India will go into the LEAP engine used in the new fuel-efficient Airbus A320neo and Boeing 737 MAX planes, both of which are part of GE’s global supply chain.

The two companies will also pursue military engine and aircraft system opportunities for the India market. Parent group Tata Sons said that a new Center of Excellence will be set up to help develop a robust ecosystem for aircraft engine manufacturing in India and build related capabilities, reports Mint.

“We look forward to working with GE to build more expertise and strengthen India’s defense manufacturing capabilities,” said N. Chandrasekaran, chairman, Tata Sons.
