As India solidifies its position as a catalyst for global growth, as demonstrated at the recent G20 Summit where world leaders expressed their confidence in New Delhi’s rising prominence, Crown Group President Vice Admiral (Retd) Paras Nath foresees a significant boost for India’s defence maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) sector, aligning with the ‘Make in India’ initiative.
“World leaders have unanimously acknowledged India’s ascent as a formidable player on the global stage. Most G20 countries are substantial trade partners with India, and many share strategic defence alliances with us. This newfound trust and confidence in our multifaceted capabilities augur well for our domestic defence MRO industry, opening up extensive prospects for MRO in India,” remarked Nath.
He highlighted that the time is ripe to bolster India’s indigenous MRO, and foreign Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) should seize the moment. “Global OEMs seeking reliable partners for equipment maintenance and service in India find it advantageous to collaborate with us. Our world-class facilities and expertise, combined with established partnerships with major international OEMs for MRO of Indian naval, marine, and aviation assets, make Crown Group a preferred choice. Notably, Crown Group is unique in having ex-servicemen from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard at all levels, contributing their valuable experience,” added Nath.
