Indian firm delivers its 1st electrical panel assembly for US fighter

Sasmos HET Technologies Limited delivered the first F/A-18 Super Hornet electrical panel assembly within six months from receipt of order to Boeing from its Bengaluru plant on Thursday.

The firm is under contract with Boeing to produce mission-critical equipment and cockpit panel assemblies for its F-15 and F/A-18 fighter aircraft, which a release issued here said is an “example of Boeing’s ongoing support of the ‘Make in India’ initiative.”

“This delivery demonstrates again that Indian suppliers, both big and small are becoming an integral part of Boeing’s global supply chain,” Boeing India President Pratyush Kumar said, adding that Boeing will continue to rapidly increase its efforts to enhance complex aerospace manufacturing in India.

Sasmos Managing Director HG Chandrasekhar said the firm has not only met the Boeing standards, but has also increased its production rate in a “relatively short timeframe.”

Boeing, the release said is expanding its collaborations with Indian firms with the aim of building a world-class aerospace ecosystem in India.

“Boeing is expanding its collaboration with Indian industrial partners across manufacturing, engineering and IT sectors. The company continues to increase its footprint as direct and indirect suppliers and sourcing activities continue to grow rapidly,” the release said.
