RUAG and TAL combine to supply A320 components

RUAG Aerostructures and TAL Manufacturing Solutions have signed a multi-year US$150 million contract to produce and supply aero structural components and sub-assemblies for Airbus A320 programme.

Based in Germany and Switzerland, RUAG is a global supplier and integrator of components for civil and military aerospace applications with key focus on the development, production and final assembly of complete passenger aircraft fuselage sections, winglets, control surface among others for major aircraft makers like Airbus and Boeing.

As part of the contract, TAL will manufacture and supply over 550 sheet metal components, machined parts and sub-assemblies to RUAG, for Airbus’ A320 programme.

“The partnership with TAL reflects our strategy to go global in the supply chain and enables RUAG to strengthen its position as a leading first-tier supplier in Aerostructures,” RUAG Group chief executive Urs Breitmeier said.

The Nagpur-based TAL Manufacturing is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Motors and focuses on precision components, assemblies and tooling for aero-structures, aero – engines and ground support.

“This contract will see us investing further in our state-of-art aerospace infrastructure at Nagpur and will uniquely position us as a supplier to two of the world’s most advanced and successful airplane programmes, the Boeing 787-Dreamliner and the Airbus A320,” TAL executive director and chief executive Rajesh Khatri said.
