Pattonair to open Bangalore facility, selected for Access India Programme

Pattonair, a leading global supply chain provider to the aerospace industry, has been selected as one of the first group of UK companies to participate in the Access India Programme (AIP). Sponsored by the Government of India, the programme is the first of its kind to facilitate investments and market entry by small and medium scale companies in the UK into India.

As the latest stage in Pattonair’s global expansion, the Derby, UK headquartered company is establishing a wholly owned subsidiary and support facility in Bangalore, scheduled to become operational by January 2019. Pattonair’s strategy is to support customers where they operate, which speeds up supply and allows it to tailor services to each customer’s specific needs and performance goals.

Pattonair has serviced UTC in India since 2014 supplying C class parts to UTC’s Actuation Systems and Sensors & Integrated Systems (SIS) sites in Bangalore for major programmes such as 787, A350 and A320neo. Bangalore is the hub of India’s rapidly growing civil and military aerospace industry, which has attracted major companies including Airbus, Rolls-Royce and UTC. India boasts the world’s third largest aircraft order book of over 1000 aircraft after the USA and China.
