Through this new contract, we not only strengthen our relationship but also enhance our contribution to the ‘Make In India’ initiative by the Government of India.

He said, “Being an Airbus supplier is a privilege for MASPL, and we value their continued endorsement of our growth endeavors. This award signifies a notable expansion of our partnership with Airbus, presenting additional opportunities for collaboration on performance, sustainability, and operational excellence.”

Having served as a direct supplier to Airbus Group since 2015, MASPL has been actively engaged in various initiatives with Airbus. The company has consistently demonstrated its capabilities, earning recognition as a D2P “Challenger” for three consecutive years in the Sheet Metal domain. It also achieved level “A” in the Airbus Industrial Process Capability Assessment (IPCA+), receiving the “Best Performer” award in the 2023 Airbus Supplier Quality Improvement Program (SQIP) awards.
