Rolls-Royce is a pioneer and the largest player in Singapore’s aerospace industry, starting operations here in the 1950s. Today, Rolls-Royce contributes over 15% of Singapore’s aerospace output.
Tapping on the city state’s strong manufacturing and R&D capabilities, it produces cutting-edge civil large engines for key customers such as Singapore Airlines and Emirates. It has
also forged joint ventures with local partners like Singapore Airlines Engineering Company to repair and overhaul aircraft engines.
Its S$700 million campus at the Seletar Aerospace Park further underscores its commitment to this market. Launched in February 2012, the 154,000-square metre Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus houses:
- State-of-the-art manufacturing facilities
The Trent aero engine assembly and test facility is its first and only in Asia. Similarly, its manufacturing facility for hollow titanium Wide Chord Fan Blades, a unique technology critical to the success of the Trent aero engine family, is the first outside the UK.
- Cutting-edge R&D operations
Rolls-Royce’s Applied Technology Group (ATG) develops advanced technologies to support core business areas. It focuses on four key fields of research: materials; computational engineering; electrical power and control systems; and manufacturing technology.
- Regional Customer Service Centre (CSC)
In February 2015, Rolls-Royce opened its first Regional CSC in the world in Singapore, and today is a part of a global network of CSCs. The Centre supports all airline customers across the Asia Pacific region, accounting for 20% of Rolls-Royce’s civil large engines in service around the world.
