Airbus’ global footprint expands with new single source Tier 1 supplier in India
Airbus has signed an agreement with Bengaluru based Dynamatic Technologies to be the single source supplier of flap-track beams for the wide body A330 Family aircraft. The agreement is the largest manufacturing contract between Airbus and a private sector company in India and elevates Dynamatic to a global tier-1 supplier. Dynamatic has manufactured flap-track beam assemblies for Airbus’ single-aisle A320 Family on a global single source basis as a Tier-2 supplier, since 2010. In phase one of the agreement, Dynamatic will assemble all the Flap Track Beams from its Bengaluru facility. In the second phase, Dynamatic will be responsible for the entire supply chain for the Flap Track including sourcing materials, manufacturing and final assembly. With this new business award Dynamatic will be established as a centre of excellence for the production of flap-track beams. In recent years, there has been a marked increase in Airbus sourcing from India, with more than US$400m worth sourced in 2014.
