The centre will enable training, upskilling, and reskilling of talent in digital engineering technologies to meet Spirit AeroSystems’ growing aerospace and defence engineering needs.

The centre will enable the two companies to work more closely together to develop cross-functional solutions to business challenges in the aircraft development lifecycle. It will also help Spirit AeroSystems to strategically expand and operate in proximity with its customers and suppliers for manufacturing and MRO operations.

Dr. Sean Black, senior vice president, chief technology officer and chief engineer, Spirit AeroSystems, said, “The strategic collaboration with Infosys in Richardson, Texas, will leverage the talent pool in the North Texas region and create a dedicated centre for aerospace engineering excellence to cover the complete aircraft development life cycle for both new derivatives and in-service aircraft.”
