The facility, located in the city of Prithla, a 45 minute drive from
Delhi, officially opened today and represents an important milestone for
India’s rapidly expanding private defense industry. The business will
focus on the development and manufacture of leading-edge radar
technology. Initial production of the first proprietary products
commenced at the facility in December 2013.
Telephonics’ long-standing and highly respected OEM customer base has
shown particularly keen interest in partnering with Mahindra Telephonics
on the development and execution of offset programs in India.
“Telephonics’ combination of world-class technology and manufacturing
capabilities, combined with Mahindra’s renowned manufacturing, corporate
governance and market presence are proving to be very compelling for our
customers in the U.S. and Europe,” explained Telephonics President and
CEO, Mr. Joseph Battaglia. “Our joint venture has also begun planning
for additional development facilities, including a larger manufacturing
facility and the development of an outdoor radar and antenna test range.”
Sharing Mr. Battaglia’s enthusiasm, Mr. S.P. Shukla, President – Group
Strategy & Defence Sector & Member of the Group Executive Board,
Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. stated, “The opening of the Prithla facility is
a critical step in transitioning American defense manufacturing
capabilities to India. Being able to support Ministry of Defence
requirements locally in India provides a multitude of benefits,
including cost efficiencies, decreased turnaround times and enhanced
logistical support.” He further added that “Mahindra Defence Systems
will now have a 3-dimensional capability encompassing the land, sea and
air domains. Synergies between the different defence and Mahindra Group
companies will also be leveraged.”

Delhi, February 6-9, where they will showcase radar, mobile surveillance
and communications technologies.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
