GKN Aerospace Delivers First Product from State-of-the-art Wiring Facility in India

Hits 441

Mumbai. 23 January 2021. A year after opening its new factory all-new facility for Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems (EWIS) in Pune, India. GKN Aerospace shipped its first product to the customer

Maarten Durville, Managing Director said, “As a supplier in the airplane industry, we were severely impacted by the pandemic and the lockdown. Just when we had trained our team to Aerospace level, we had to shut down. I am very proud that we can leave this chapter behind us and ship the first product. We can look forward again: the lockdown was just a delay of our growth plan, we have added 50 employees in the last months and are on track to grow to 300 next year.”

The first product is a wire harness for Collins Aerospace and will be employed in the Air management system of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. GKN Aerospace will grow the $10 million site, with a surface of 11,000 m2, to 800 person within five years. GKN Aerospace will recruit a significant number of female operators and engineers and will provide on-site training for employees. A team of 30 persons has been built to date. GKN Aerospace has invested $10 million in the site and in its state of the art equipment and technologies. The expansion to Asia is an important part of GKN Aerospace’s long-term growth strategy and global operating model.
