Rolls-Royce started its relationship with India over 80 years ago with its engines powering the first civil and military aircraft in the country. Chris Cholerton, President – Defence Aerospace at one of the world’s leading manufacturers in the sector, tells ‘India Investment Journal’ how a focus on technology and capability transfer has contributed towards India’s sustainable growth.
How is Rolls-Royce supporting the India growth story?
Today, as an investor, a high skills employer and a supplier of power systems across aerospace, marine, nuclear and industrial, we are developing a significant portfolio of activity in India to undertake progressively more complex activity across the engineering, manufacturing and supply chain domain. We believe in India’s inherent strengths and are well-positioned to support the government in its commitment to ‘Make in India’ and in other socio-economic initiatives such as ‘Smart Cities’ ‘Skilling’ etc.
