First President for Rolls-Royce India appointed

Bangalore : Rolls-Royce today announced the appointment of Anil Shrikhande as President Rolls-Royce India. Anil will assume leadership of all Rolls-Royce operations and activities in India and South Asia.

Sir John Rose, Chief Executive Rolls-Royce, said: "India is an important market for Rolls-Royce and I am very pleased to welcome Anil to the Group. Anil brings extensive experience that will be very valuable to us as we continue to grow and develop our business in India and South Asia."

Anil Shrikhande, President Rolls-Royce India, said: "I am very excited to be part of such an iconic company with a brand that stands for excellence, globally. Rolls-Royce has a solid foundation built up over 75 years in India. I look forward to building on that and developing collaborations which capitalise on India's growing competencies in manufacturing and technology services."

Prior to joining Rolls-Royce, Anil held a number of executive positions at Boeing, including Vice President, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems and President, Boeing India. His previous roles in India also include President of Unisys India and Board membership of Tata Unisys.

Srinivas Duvvuri, previously Regional Director – India, is transferring to a new role in the Group's Bangalore office.

This appointment reinforces the company's commitment to India as an important centre for sourcing, technology services and product development and also reflects India's importance as a long-term market for all its four businesses – civil aerospace, defence aerospace, marine and energy.

Rolls-Royce Operations India Limited (RROIPL) in Bangalore, manages and develops the growing volume of engineering work that the Group is sub contracting in India. Rolls-Royce Energy Systems India Private Limited (RRESIPL) based in Delhi has capability in engineering, project management and after-sales customer services for reciprocating (diesel and gas) engines.

Rolls-Royce has more than 1,300 engines in service in India, mainly as a result of long-term defence programmes. However, all four of the company's global market sectors – civil aerospace, defence aerospace, marine and energy – are well represented. Rolls-Royce also has a long standing relationship with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) that dates back over 52 years to a collaboration that began in 1956 with the assembly of engines under licence that has now progressed to component manufacturing for the world's most successful large turbofan engine, the Trent.

HAL has been manufacturing the Adour Mk811 for the Jaguar since 1981 and is now producing the Adour 871 for the new Hawk AJT under a new licence agreement. The Hawk AJT aircraft powered by the Adour are being used to train the next generation of Indian pilots. The 1st HAL produced Hawk aircraft with HAL produced Adour engine has already been delivered to the Indian Air Force.

In May 2008, Rolls-Royce opened a new Marine MRO facility in India. 60 Rolls-Royce UT™ designed vessels and over 300 vessels with Rolls-Royce Marine equipment are currently operating in India, with a further 39 UT design vessels currently under construction at various Indian shipyards.
