Airbus Helicopters and Mahindra reaffirm ties

Singapore: Airbus Helicopters and Mahindra Defence have reaffirmed their partnership toward producing military helicopters in India.

The two companies have made “significant progress” since entering a joint venture in 2015, says Airbus Helicopters in a statement.

To affirm their cooperation, the two companies signed a “statement of intent” in the presence of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi and French president Francois Hollande, who is visiting India.

“Mahindra Defence and Airbus Helicopters have already initiated an industrial relationship to produce helicopter parts locally and are defining additional work packages to be industrialised in India which would facilitate the required rapid ramp-up in the case of a programme award to the joint venture,” says Airbus Helicopters.
