QuEST Global, leading provider of diversified engineering services and manufacturing has been awarded a five year contract by SAAB for the supply of machined and sheet metal parts for Boeing 787 cargo doors. This five year contract, will be executed at the QuEST Global SEZ in Belgaum, Karnataka and the delivery of the sample parts (FAI) is to be completed by 1st quarter of 2010.

During the evaluation phase, a number of Indian suppliers were assessed on various parameters ranging from capability to infrastructure. This association will lead the companies to explore possibilities of further collaboration at a later stage.

This engagement gives me immense pleasure as QuEST Global is among the first Indian suppliers that SAAB has associated with and has plans of scaling up in future. The operations, being based at the SEZ, would also allow our customer to enjoy the financial benefits of being part of the aerospace supply chain ecosystem, the first of its kind in India, said Aravind Melligeri, Chairman & Co-founder, QuEST Global.

According to Elisabeth Ross, Strategic Sourcing Director, We are pleased to have found in QuEST Global, a competent partner to meet our component requirements. This agreement is also an important step in Saabs industrial cooperation program with Indian companies.
