Currently, the centre is supporting the company’s engine systems business, one of the three major aero-engine structures providers to the global aerospace market. In the future its activity will extend to provide engineering support for projects across the GKN Aerospace enterprise, including its market-leading aerostructures and transparencies operations.

“GKN Aerospace is known for the strength of its engineering expertise, and through this new centre the company is adding India’s – and specifically, Bangalore’s – impressive engineering skills base to that expertise,” said David Orth, the newly appointed general manager at the centre. “We look forward to playing our part in creating effective design and engineering solutions that will help GKN Aerospace extend the performance of future aircraft and aero-engines.”
