(one of the world’s leading industrial technology companies) recently inaugurated their joint ‘Aerospace Engineering and Digital Innovation Centre’ in Bengaluru, India. This centre has been established to provide high-end R&D services integrated with advanced digital capabilities to Rolls-Royce’s engineering and group business services from India.
Speaking about the new centre, Kishore Jayaraman, Rolls-Royce’s president (India and South Asia), said: “Our strategic partnership with Infosys presents an exciting opportunity for both companies to leverage combined strengths in engineering and digital innovation to accelerate growth in the civil aerospace market.
“Given the aerospace sector is poised for revival and growth in India and across the world, this joint innovation centre will strengthen Rolls-Royce’s global engineering ecosystem and position us well for the future.”
As part of this collaboration, Infosys and Rolls-Royce will combine their aerospace, engineering and digital services capabilities to explore opportunities ‘for driving digital and engineering innovation and associated cost optimisation strategies’. By expanding the local talent pool in the country, the two companies will also deliver manufacturing engineering services for the global civil aerospace ecosystem.
Over the last decade, Rolls-Royce established a multi-disciplinary engineering centre in Bengaluru as part of its efforts to boost engineering and R&D services in India. In December 2020, the company announced a collaboration for sourcing engineering and R&D services for Rolls-Royce’s Civil Aerospace business, whereby a significant part of its engineering centre capabilities would be transitioned to Infosys.
Infosys will continue to harness its experience, expertise, and investments in the domain to strengthen its existing capabilities and deliver enhanced end-to-end solutions while optimising operational costs for its customers.
