As announced in February earlier, Rolls-Royce has opened a new Defence Service Delivery Centre (SDC) in Asia located at the Manyata Embassy Business Park in Bengaluru.
Co-located with the Rolls-Royce Engineering Centre, the SDC will offer localised engineering support to improve frontline capability of Indian Air Force (IAF) and Indian Navy (IN) aircraft, and to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
The Centre was officially inaugurated by Dominic McAllister, British Deputy High Commissioner, Bengaluru, in the presence of Rolls-Royce executives including Kishore Jayaraman, President – India & South Asia; Lee Doherty, Senior Vice President - Defence, Asia Pacific; and Shaun Agle, Vice President Customer Services India Defence.
According to Doherty: “We put our customers at the heart of our business, and the opening of our first Service Delivery Centre in India demonstrates our commitment to be closer to our customers to ensure they get the best possible aftermarket support and outstanding customer service which they have come to expect from us. With a highly skilled team, fully trained in engineering services, supply chain and operational support, we will continue to provide maximum engine readiness and availability.”
