New Delhi, March 11 (IANS) The Boeing Company has announced Tuesday that its wholly owned subsidiary Aviall, one of the largest providers of new aviation parts and related aftermarket services in the aerospace industry, plans to open a business office in India later this year. Aviall’s India operation will serve the rapidly growing Indian aviation industry and be headquartered at the Noida special economic zone adjoining New Delhi.

“Boeing’s commitment to India continues to gain momentum by bringing value to India’s aerospace industry,” Boeing India president Ian Thomas said.

“Aviall’s India initiative is one more in a series of recent growth and productivity efforts to strengthen and deepen our partnerships,” he added.

To lead this initiative, Aviall has appointed Sachin Taparia as the managing director of Aviall India. Previously, Taparia was responsible for the supply chain services at Aviall headquarters in Dallas. In his new position, Taparia will relocate to New Delhi.

“India is one of the fastest growing markets for Aviall and its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers. This initiative and Sachin’s appointment highlight Aviall’s commitment in supporting its OEMs and India-based customers,” said Aviall chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) Paul Fulchino.

“With its proximity to New Delhi, the Noida special economic zone allows us to have presence close to a key aviation hub of India and the opportunity to grow,” he added.

Boeing is the world’s leading aerospace company and the largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft combined. Headquartered in Chicago, Boeing employs more than 150,000 people across the US and in 70 countries.

Aviall distributes aviation parts for more than 225 manufacturers.
