Aerostructures Assemblies (AAIPL), a joint venture between Aequs Aerospace and Saab AB, celebrated an important milestone with the completion of 100th shipset each of Over Wing Exit Doors (OWED), skeleton assemblies and Door 3 Plugs (D3P).
Though initiated on different dates, it is remarkable that both the projects achieved this significant milestone in a matter of 29 months (for D3P) and 11 months (for OWED). The D3P assembly manifests an intricate build-to-print assembly, while the OWED skeleton is mapped for a steeper build rate requirement.
The occasion was graced by Rémi Maillard, President & Managing Director at Airbus India & South Asia along with Thierry Cloutet, Head of Procurement, India & South Asia at Airbus at the Aequs SEZ in Belagavi.
Rajeev Kaul, MD & CEO, Aequs Aerospace, said: “It is indeed an honour for us to celebrate this major milestone. Airbus is an important customer and the delivery of these 100 shipsets, in partnership with Saab, is testimony to our extreme customer focus. That we were able to complete the projects well in time despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, shows our resolve to deliver against all odds to stringent customer requirements. This is also a confirmation of our engineering prowess and capability to carry out complex aerostructure assemblies here in India.”
