GS Precision and Jeh Aerospace Forge Major Long-term Partnership


Jeh Aerospace, specializing in aerospace and defense components, tools, and assemblies, and GS Precision, renowned for producing critical components for the aerospace and defense sectors worldwide, have forged a manufacturing alliance. This collaboration will see the establishment of a dedicated production facility in Hyderabad, India.

GS Precision's president and CEO, Matthew O'Connell, said, “I am thrilled to expand our manufacturing capacity with Jeh Aerospace. Their capabilities complement our domestic base for the production of aerospace components. This capacity will allow us to continue to meet our growing customer demand for high-quality, precision-manufactured components".

Jeh Aerospace was jointly established by Vishal R. Sanghavi and Venkatesh Mudragalla, both of whom have held leadership positions in Boeing, Lockheed, and Sikorsky joint ventures with the esteemed Tata Group in India. Throughout the past ten years, their efforts have been dedicated to harnessing India's manufacturing capabilities, capacities, and competitive edge for these original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Sanghavi and Mudragalla shared, “The US aerospace and defense manufacturing industry is severely constrained due to labor shortages, talent attrition, and high costs. Jeh Aerospace will leverage the talent base of India and its state-of-the-art manufacturing and digital technology to build supply resiliency for leading US-based aerospace and defense manufacturers like GS Precision”.

The facility is set to produce precision machine components for commercial aero-engines. This strategic partnership seeks to bolster GS Precision's global supply chain, guaranteeing top-notch quality, punctual delivery, and cost adherence for their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) clients. Additionally, the collaboration leverages India's abundant talent pool and strengthens the idea of "friendshoring" vital components within the American aerospace sector.

Tom Churbuck, Operating Partner at AE Industrial Partners, a leading private equity firm focused on aerospace and defense, and owner of GS Precision, shared his impressions from his recent visit to Jeh Aerospace in Hyderabad, “I’m convinced of Jeh Aerospace's capability to deliver best-of-class aerospace products. I believe India is the next great opportunity for international aerospace manufacturing due to the educational system, availability of skilled workers, and the region’s political stability”.

Pratyush Kumar, an angel investor in Jeh and advisor to VC firm General Catalyst stated, “The commitment from GS Precision is a great proof point of aerospace and defense opportunities in the US—India corridor and represents a significant endorsement of aerospace manufacturing in India. I believe the team at Jeh Aerospace is in a strong position to surpass GS Precision’s expectations”.
