This milestone reflects TBAL's continuous dedication to indigenous manufacturing prowess.

TBAL’s 14,000 sqm facility serves as a global sole source supplier for Apache fuselages, with over 90 percent of the parts used in the Apache aerostructure assemblies manufactured in India through more than 100 Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) suppliers.
