'Make in India' with Samtel

'Make in India' with Samtel

The 'Make in India' initiative is designed to improve and strengthen manufacturing capabilities in India and also act as a strong mandate to foreign players to develop manufacturing units in India.

While the government - through this initiative - isstressing upon Indian companies to scale up their operations for the international market, it is of real significance that Samtel is already doing that for last few years now:

  • Samtel is the sole source for Honeywell worldwide for avionics equipment for their General Aviation range in the US, and these displays have been in serial production for many years with the supplies going regularly to Honeywell for integration.
  • Samtel's joint venture with HAL is a prime example of how DPSUs can successfully partner with private sector to leverage on the strengths of both the companies to support indigenous production. 100+ sets (approx. 700 units) of MFDs have been delivered by Samtel-HAL JV for induction on Su-30 MKIs, and are already flying. It is only recently that the current government has begun laying thrust upon public sector to tie up with private players to boost indigenisation, while Samtel and HAL had already had a headstart on this for many years.
  • Samtel is also partnering with Thales to on the Mirage2000 Mid-life upgrade to manufacture and supply multifunction displays through their joint venture based at Delhi.
  • Samtel has partnered with General Dynamics Canada for co-production and co-marketing of products for military/ ground market. As one of the recent achievements of this partnership, Samtel Avionics has received the PO by CVRDE for Arjun Main Battle Tank's (Mk II) Commander Sight Displays. These displays would be integrated with Arjun MBT Mk II Tanks and Futuristic Main Battle tanks.
  • SA is also a part of the global supply chain for Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions (CWCDS), where we are collaborating with them for a new generation of intelligent, rugged displays for the defence and aerospace markets. This will establish Samtel as a Tier II supplier to helicopter manufacturers such as Bell, Eurocopter, Augusta Westland and Sikorsky.

Besides these, Samtel is already under various levels and kinds of partnerships with atleast 5 of the top 10 global players in the Aerospace and Defence industry, and are already supplying to the likes of Honeywell and HAL for more than last5 years. There will be very few completely Indian firms/ MSMEs in India which can lay claim to be in the stage that Samtel is now.
