Wipro Infrastructure Engineering (WIN) commenced supplying aerospace parts to global aircraft maker Boeing from its plant in Bengaluru, said the IT major's arm on Thursday. "Boeing has contracted our aerospace division to make strut assemblies for its 737 MAX and next-generation 737 airplane programmes," said the city-based WIN in a statement.
As Boeing sources systems and components from India as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Wipro's expertise with aero-structures and actuators provide an option to aircraft makers.
"It is a privilege to partner with Boeing to support their 737 programmes. Our expertise and project execution have helped us achieve this feat," said WIN Chief Executive Pratik Kumar.
WIN is confident of bagging more such contracts in the future because of the stringent quality standards that are needed to qualify for this programme, Kumar added.
In the last few years, WIN and Boeing have partnered with each other. WIN has supplied aero-structures and components for the Boeing's 737, 767 and 787 Dreamliner fleet through its facility in Israel.
"Our partnerships with Indian suppliers like Wipro play a key role in Boeing's global strategy. Our mutual agreement demonstrates our commitment to developing the aerospace industry in India," said Boeing India Director Ashwani Bhargava in the statement.
