India’s Crown Group will use AERO India in Bangalore this week to showcase indigenously-developed technology innovations in manufacturing, maintenance, modernisation, repair and servicing for all three armed service branches.
The group has multiple European and global partners in the defence engineering, servicing and allied fields, with over 40 years’ experience in manufacturing and servicing of defence-related equipment. In Bangalore, it will demonstrate industrial development capabilities such as maintenance, servicing and modernisation for the Indian armed forces. Its commitment to indigenous solutions aligns entirely with the government’s vision of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ – ‘a self-reliant India.’
Group companies addressing these opportunities include:
• Dynatron Integrated Technologies and OSK India, for naval projects;
• Aviatech Enterprises and Zealtek Enterprises for aerospace projects;
• PCPL for Army projects.
Partnership agreements with major OEMs have led to orders already in execution. “We are uniquely placed as an ideal partner of choice for global OEMs, manufacturers of spares and components in affiliated manufacturing clusters, aircraft and ship modernisation, under the ‘Make in India’ scheme [having] robust partnerships with leading manufacturing companies across the globe. AERO India 2021 provides us with the perfect opportunity to showcase our leadership in indigenously-developed manufacturing and servicing prowess, contributing to India’s ever-growing aerospace and defence requirements,” commented Cdre (Retd) Rakesh Anand, CEO of OSK India, which has an exclusive cooperation agreement with United Shipbuilding Corporation of Russia, for maintenance and servicing of Indian naval ships as well as manufacturing and supply of spares.
Crown Group has created a significant manufacturing infrastructure by partnering with smaller companies, to which it will provide technological support and quality control, in partnership with international OEMs.
