General Dynamics UK has signed a teaming agreement with India’s Tandon Group to jointly pursue opportunities in the security and defence markets in India. Together the companies will deliver indigenous systems integration capability to their Indian customers and India as a whole.
This new relationship builds on General Dynamics UK’s existing track-record of partnering with Indian companies to meet unique Indian requirements. Through a partnership with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), for example, General Dynamics UK supports the Indian Air Force’s Hawk aircraft fleet in an effort that includes substantial transfer of intellectual property.
“This partnership with General Dynamics UK will enable Indian defence and security customers to realise the true benefits of systems integration, at the same time maximising the existing technical, manufacturing and support already available from our companies in India,” commented Sandeep Tandon, Managing Director at Tandon Group.
“Teaming with Tandon Group will provide General Dynamics UK with a respected Indian partner, together with whom we can deliver excellent integrated solutions for programmes in India’s defence and security sectors,” commented Dr Sandy Wilson, President and Managing Director of General Dynamics UK.
“The Tandon Group partnership will enable us to continue our strategic focus enabling us to deliver real tangible benefit to our Indian customers,” commented Wayne Beck, Head of International Partnerships at General Dynamics UK.
Tandon Group has been a pioneer in creating high technology companies focused on providing global customers with lowcost innovative technology solutions. The group is now spending considerable resources through its defence licensed subsidiary MEPL to serve Indian defence and security customers.
General Dynamics UK will be present at Defexpo 2012 to be held at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi (Stand 14.24).
