The Aerospace & Defense Awards 2017, felicitated Mr. BVR Mohan Reddy for numerous accomplishments over the last four decades from pioneering the Engineering R&D model in India to stepping–up the business collaboration and moving from mere cost arbitrage to more value-driven program partnerships.
In the four years of Aerospace & Defense Awards, this is the second time that Cyient has been awarded the Excellence in Aerospace Exports based on criteria like global competitiveness, strategic alliances, and increasing India’s market share in the global Aerospace & Defense market.
On receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, Mr. BVR Mohan Reddy Founder and Executive Chairman, Cyient said, “When I started Cyient (formerly Infotech Enterprises) in 1991, many global firms were not ready to outsource engineering, and similarly Indian companies did not have the risk appetite to get into this skill and technology-intensive product development sector. Our relentless focus on product and process innovation set us apart, and today we are a preferred partner for our global clients in the Aerospace & Defense sector. I am delighted to receive this award and dedicate it to the Cyient team, which has worked relentlessly to make Cyient a global leader in this space. We will continue to reinvent our business, operations, and the value we offer to our clients.”
