Chemring and Hinduja join to serve Indian defence market

Chemring, an established supplier to the Indian armed forces, and the Hinduja Group plan to develop a business to serve the Indian defence and security markets with the full range of Chemring products: countermeasures, electronic warfare, high-energy materials, munitions, pyrotechnics and end-of-life ordnance destruction, with the transfer of appropriate technological capabilities.

The joint venture will also look to local sourcing and seek to develop an indigenous manufacturing capability.

The technologically advanced products, local manufacturing and related transfer of technology are targeted to enhance the defence and internal security capabilities of the Indian armed forces and government in a cost-effective manner.

The joint venture is expected to commence operations this year on receipt of the required regulatory approvals.
