Airbus has selected L&T Technology Services (LTTS) as a strategic engineering partner for providing Advanced Engineering Capabilities and Digital Manufacturing Services under a multi-year contract. The development is a major step forward in the long-standing partnership between the two companies.
LTTS is a leading global pure-play engineering services company and under this agreement, will support Airbus in key verticals and technology areas for its ongoing commercial and innovation programmes.
Amit Chadha, CEO & Managing Director, LTTS, said the recent selection of LTTS by Airbus was a reaffirmation of the company’s deep domain leadership and industry-leading expertise in driving a redefinition of the global ER&D landscape. “As we continue to move ahead on our objective of being counted among the largest and the best global ER&D firms, the acknowledgement and support of an industry leader like Airbus is exciting and serves to inspire us for the next milestone.”
LTTS engineers will now support Airbus’ Numerical Control Programming (NCP) Cluster, which includes composite production, trimming & cutting, standard machining, advanced machining, drilling & riveting, control & metrology, fast shop machining and technical support.
LTTS will also be driving the design and stress support for advanced capabilities, including thermal analysis, vulnerability assessment, advanced failure analysis, manufacturing simulation, and modelling services.
LTTS said the engineering support will be executed from its offshore locations in Bengaluru, India, its recently inaugurated near-shore centre in Toulouse, France, and onsite support at Airbus locations in the UK, Germany, France, and Spain.
LTTS is a strategic engineering supplier for Airbus globally, providing engineering services across verticals like engineering, avionics and digital, and is also a part of the industry-leading ‘Skywise Partner Programme.’
In 2022, LTTS was recognised as a Global Strategic Engineering Supplier under the Airbus EMES3 (Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Services Strategic Suppliers) programme.
LTTS has an extensive presence in the aerospace sector, with offerings covering a wide spectrum of services, including aero structure & systems design, manufacturing engineering, avionics and software development, aero engine design, air traffic maintenance solutions, and airlines & MRO offerings that leverage its robust and extensive digital engineering solutions portfolio for catering to all phases of the aircraft lifecycle.
