Tritech transfers tech expertise to Dharwad plant
Singapore: Tritech Group Ltd, a UK-based manufacturer owned by Neterwala Group, is transferring part of its aerospace component technology and expertise to Dharwad plant in Karnataka.
"Eighty parts have been transferred as part of the ongoing programme to supply components from India to Airbus and UTC among others," said Andy Cheers, senior business development manager of Tritech.
"The intent is to develop the capability to supply the aerospace standard parts in India," he said on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow.
"We have attained the necessary approvals for that facility - AS9100 for aerospace standards; and NADECAP - which is approval for special processes," Cheers said of the Dharwad plant.
The Dharwad plant is a world leader in the manufacture of brass synchroniser rings and precision machined components for the automotive and truck industry.
There is 15-20 per cent cost savings on parts made, according to Cheers.
In 2011, Neterwala Group acquired Tritech, specialists in manufacturing aerospace parts aluminium, stainless and super alloys. It also does multi-axis C and C machining.
