Rolls-Royce started its association with the Indian aerospace sector in 1932 when Tata Aviation Services, launched its first aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Gipsy engines and soon after the Indian Air Force took to the skies in 1933, powered by Bristol Jupiter engines. Today, in India, Rolls-Royce has more than 1,350 engines in service and all the company’s global market sectors – civil aerospace, defense, marine and energy are all well represented in the country.
Rolls-Royce and its joint venture companies, employ 450 people directly in India. A further 800 engineers work exclusively for Rolls-Royce in engineering centres in Bangalore.
India is now an extremely significant territory for Rolls-Royce, both as a market, and as a country that is playing a growing role in the Group’s global operations. From licensed production to engineering services and component manufacture, the business has expanded in the last decade supported by mutually beneficial partnerships, with leading companies in India.
Rolls-Royce operates in several locations in India, with the Regional Office, Energy Division and airline support office in New Delhi; the Marine Office and Repair & Overhaul facility in Navi Mumbai; Engineering Centres, Project and Supply Chain Office in Bangalore; and support offices in Palam, Bidar, Kochi and Goa.
