Pattonair to Open Bangalore Facility

Pattonair has been selected as one of the first UK companies to participate in the Access India Programme (AIP).

Sponsored by the Government of India, the programme is designed to facilitate investments and market entry for small and medium scale companies in the UK into India.

As part of Pattonairs global expansion, the Derby-based company is establishing a wholly owned subsidiary and support facility in Bangalore which is scheduled to become operational by January 2019.

Pattonair has serviced UTC in India since 2014 supplying C class parts to UTCs Actuation Systems and Sensors & Integrated Systems (SIS) sites in Bangalore for major programmes such as B787, A350 and A320 neo.

Bangalore is the hub of Indias rapidly growing civil and military aerospace industry, which has attracted major companies including Airbus, Rolls-Royce and UTC.

Pattonair will not only bring its world class supply chain services and solutions to Indias OEM and MRO sectors, but offer Indias component manufacturers access to its global aerospace and defence customers who include Rolls-Royce, Safran and Boeing. Pattonairs strategic procurement team is currently meeting with India based suppliers to provide parts to customers in India and to the rest of the world, said Mark Ness, Commercial Director for India, Pattonair.

AIP is part of the 'Make it in India' programme, announced by the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, to encourage international companies to base their operations in India.

His Excellency H. E. Mr Y. K. Sinha, High Commissioner of India to the United Kingdom, said, The Government of India is committed and focused to improving Indias ranking in ease of doing business. Through AIP, we aim to take forward the Make in India programme. I hope that by implementing this programme, we can highlight the latest developments in India in ease of doing business, facilitate initiatives by SMEs and enhance bilateral investment between the two countries.
