Saab, Adani team for Gripen E
Saab and Adani Group will collaborate to produce Gripen E fighter jets for India should the aircraft be selected by the Indian government, Saab announced on 1 September.
The collaboration would encompass design, development and production of Gripen jets for India and other high-tech products in line with the Make in India initiative. It will also include the creation of joint ventures in the country.
This collaboration will combine the technical and product excellence of Saab, along with the industrial engineering, system integration and project execution capabilities of Adani with the intention to manufacture defence systems in India.
With India’s aim of growing its defence industry, Saab and Adani will work on developing a wider aerospace and defence ecosystem in India. The collaboration would also include projects, programmes and technologies of national importance to India.
Håkan Buskhe, president and CEO of Saab, said: ‘Our plans in India are to create a new defence eco-system that would involve many partners, vendors and suppliers. To attain this, we need a strong Indian partner who can help create the framework for the infrastructure and eco-system to come into place.’
