HYDERABAD (IANS) – Hyderabad-based AZAD Engineering on Mar.16 said it had delivered the first consignment of aviation parts to global aerospace major Boeing.

AZAD, a strategic supplier to Boeing, had won the contract in Jul. 2021. The precision engineering firm at the time had decided to set up a new, $80 million manufacturing plant in Hyderabad and hire an additional 1,500 people over the next three years.

These parts will be used in several Boeing airplanes. The Boeing contract has enabled AZAD Engineering to reinforce its efficiency, reliability and deliver greater value to its customers.
“This is a momentous occasion for Telangana and India as the parts manufactured here will now be used globally in several Boeing platforms,” said Rakesh Chopdar, Founder and Managing Director, AZAD Engineering.
“This milestone wasn’t easy as we had to meticulously plan the manufacturing facility, clear rigorous compliances, assessments and audits, and then manufacture parts to meet our delivery schedule. The first shipment’s delivery, being on-time, is a testament to the trust that our partners place in AZAD,” added Chopdar.
Ashwani Bhargava, Director, Supply Chain Management, Boeing India, congratulated AZAD team. “This is yet another example of Boeing’s commitment to India and support for the government’s Aatmanirbhar Bharat vision – manufacturing in India, for the world. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with AZAD Engineering,” he said.
