Abutting NH7, Andhra Pradesh Aerospace & Defence Electronics Park (AP-ADE Park) is a 264 acres “Innovation led Manufacturing Cluster” focused on Aerospace, Defence & Electronics. Located in the designated Aerospace & Defence Zone identified by the Government of Andhra Pradesh, it is at an hour's drive from Bangalore International Airport.

AP-ADE Park has a ‘Design to Manufacturing’ approach that is unique from the other manufacturing parks built for the sole purpose of manufacturing or providing land with basic infrastructure. AP-ADE Park will provide common warehousing facility and its cluster approach will facilitate companies to find their vendors and customers at the same location thereby reducing their supply chain and other operational overheads. AP-ADE Park also plans to invest in programs and infrastructure to drive innovation, like – university, convention centres, training facilities, world-class product testing labs and common design facilities/studios. We also plan to bring in network of professionals with skill sets in technology, IP safeguards, consulting, global alliances for marketing of products, product management training among others.

At the core of our project is “innovation” that fuels manufacturing the next engine of growth for the country. The infrastructure and programs at the cluster are geared towards seamless integration of academia, industry and community to attract top global talents for innovation. The eco-system created by our project will help small, medium and large scale enterprises to build and access global markets at local costs of infrastructure and skilled manpower. The environment at park will enable continuous learning through interdisciplinary innovarsity, global university campuses, institutional and corporate R&D centres and technical training institutes for skilling/re-skilling. The integrated eco-system will provide support right from design to manufacturing by leveraging the energy of its KTR (Knowledge-Training-Research) clusters to foster ideas rejuvenating businesses.

AP-ADE Park is at an hour’s drive from Bangalore International Airport, abutting NH7 that runs between Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Anantapur is likely to emerge as future hub for Defence research and manufacturing in India. Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), a leading defence PSU is setting up a manufacturing unit on 900 acres of land, diagonally opposite to AP-ADE Park. Other than this a number of private companies are also looking at Anantapur to setup their manufacturing units.


A large number of colleges and educational institutes at Anantapur are a source for quality manpower. There are around 19 Engineering Colleges, 29 ITI Institutes, 10 Polytechnic College, 37 BCA-MCA and MBA Colleges and around 110 Schools. AP-ADE plans to tie-up with key engineering colleges to help deliver courses for skills up-gradation to meet the needs of the industry.

Anantapur has sufficient manpower availability and around 30% of the manpower works in the nearby manufacturing industries, who would be happy to relocate.

Other than Bangalore airport, AP-ADE Park is well connected to Puttaparthi airport, 50 kms from site. The nearest Railway Station is Hindupur at a distance of 30 kms from site, which makes it easily accessible to major towns, cities and states.
