FTL Technology designs, develops and supplies bespoke sealing solutions for a wide range of vehicle driveline and mobility applications, including international defence customers across Europe, North America and Asia.
We visit and communicate directly with our Indian customers as a feature of our business, but we also have direct local support and representation in India. Mr Ravi Dewan of Unekar Polymer Agency in Kolkata is a key element of our customer service ethos. In support of our Indian defence customers, Ravi visited the recent DefExpo 2020 exhibition in Lucknow.
Defexpo is a significant event with major Indian and international defense contractors exhibiting. Whilst at the event Ravi was able to visit the exhibition stands of our Indian customers to discuss both our existing and new projects.
FTL Technology is the specified sealing solutions provider for several major high-profile vehicle programs within India, including;
- Sealing solutions for mobility applications on the latest generation 155mm tracked mobile howitzer program
- Central tire inflation (CTI) sealing solutions for new logistics vehicle platforms in 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, 10x10 and 12x12 configuration
- Central tire inflation (CTI) sealing solutions for the next-generation 4x4 lightweight support and specialist purpose vehicles
- Development of a sealing solution for mobility applications on the next-generation tracked infantry vehicle
As can be seen, the range of applications covered by these kinds of sealing systems is wide and varied, but commonly linked in both functionality and criticality. Because these sealing systems are so intrinsically linked to defense vehicle mobility, and therefore survivability, our sealing solutions absolutely must deliver first time every time.
