Rolls-Royce, Infosys pair up for civil aerospace in India

Rolls-Royce and Infosys have entered into signed a strategic partnership for sourcing engineering and R&D services for Rolls-Royce’s Civil Aerospace business. 

Through this partnership, Rolls-Royce will transition a significant part of its engineering centre capabilities for civil aerospace in Bengaluru to Infosys. In turn, Infosys will provide a full range of high-end engineering and R&D services integrated with advanced digital service to Rolls-Royce.

“India has grown to become a key contributor to the Rolls-Royce global engineering ecosystem, delivering high levels of technical capability to support a broad range of complex business demands,” said Kishore Jayaraman, president of Rolls-Royce India & South Asia.

“Our vision is to continue this high capability engineering work in India, in partnership with Infosys,” he said.

Jasmeet Singh, EVP and global head of manufacturing at Infosys, said the Rolls-Royce engineering team at Bengaluru has been at the forefront of these innovations, and the collaboration will contribute to Infosys’ deep experience in turbomachinery.

“We look forward to continuing to deliver industry leading solutions to our clients in the aerospace and defence sectors and beyond, while providing a great career path to our new colleagues within a rapidly growing ecosystem,” said Singh.

Rolls-Royce established a multidisciplinary engineering centre in Bengaluru, and this has been an integral part of Rolls-Royce Engineering and R&D services. The centre covers a mix of engineering capabilities that span the full range of sub-functions and specialisms in R&D.

Infosys is delivering end-to-end solutions to customers in the turbomachinery, propulsion (TMP), aerospace and defence industries. The engineering centre for civil aerospace is expected to strengthen Infosys’ existing capabilities in TMP that are currently delivered through a network of engineering centres in Mysore, Baden, and Karlovac.
