BANGALORE, India, March 18 (UPI) -- A joint venture company of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. and Rolls-Royce of Britain has opened a production facility in India.

The facility of International Aerospace Manufacturing Ltd. in Bangalore will make components for Rolls-Royce's Trent family of civil aero engines, as well as for a number of marine and energy gas turbines.

HAL is the production agency of Rolls-Royce's Adour 804/811 engine for the Jaguar aircraft operated by the Indian air force and of Adour MK 871 engines used on Hawk advanced jet trainer aircraft.

"The production facility incorporates the latest Rolls-Royce manufacturing techniques and will create job opportunities for highly skilled technicians and engineers in India," said Naresh Babu, HAL managing director.

The facility was built at a cost of $25 million. It covers about 77,500 square feet. When it begins production this year it will have computerized maintenance management systems, metal spray booths and non-destructive testing lines as well as up-to-date machine tools, HAL said.
