New Delhi, November 25: Azad Engineering, a Hyderabad-based firm and the provider of designed complex precision components for Aerospace, Clean Energy, Defence, Oil & Gas, and SPS OEMs, has delivered the first consignment of Made-in-India National Aerospace Standard (NAS) parts to Boeing.
The consignment is part of the contract Azad obtained in September 2021. It transported essential and one-of-a-kind aerospace components for various Boeing aeroplanes, The Financial Express reported.
"We congratulate Azad Engineering on completing the first consignment of National Aerospace Standard parts for us. It is yet another demonstration of the company’s global manufacturing capability – this truly is Make in India for the world," Ashwani Bhargava, senior director, Supply Chain for Boeing India was reported saying.
The move is expected to give the much-desired and chased push to the goal of ‘aatmanirbharta’ or self-reliance in the defence and manufacturing sector.
This collaboration came after Azad enhanced its manufacturing skills, and the business claims to have established a near-flawless production system by extensively investing in technology and cutting-edge infrastructure.
"The breakthrough is the direct outcome of planning, rigorous production, and clever supply-chain management," stated Rakesh Chopdar, Founder and Managing Director of Azad Engineering.
Azad intends to expand its defence and space activities in line with the Government of India's Aatmanirbhar Bharat program. India’s defence exports have surged by 334% in the last five years, and as a consequence of collaborative efforts, India now exports to more than 75 countries.
India's export to more than 75 countries worldwide, has provided a significant boost to the indigenous defence sector in its quest to achieve "aatmanirbharta" (self-reliance) goal.
