Pune, July 23, 2018 – Tata Technologies Ltd., a global engineering services provider, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Vidarbha Defence Industries Association (VDIA) at the “Made in Vidarbha in Aerospace and Defence” Summit held last week in Nagpur. This partnership will lead to the setting up of a new state-of-the-art aerospace & defence Centre in Nagpur. The MoU was signed in the presence of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Devendra Fadnavis.

The partnership between Tata Technologies Ltd. & VDIA supported by the Government of Maharashtra, will promote the state as an aerospace & defence manufacturing and export hub.

Tata Technologies’ unique offerings for aerospace and defence are perfectly aligned to VDIA’s vision of creating a first-of-its-kind ecosystem to facilitate defence-integrated development by supporting the Indian Aerospace and Defence industry to be globally competitive”.
