Pratt & Whitney has officially opened Pratt & Whitney Component Solutions’ new repair and engineering facility at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park.
The facility performs certain PW4000 engine component repair and will house various office support departments, including the company’s recently established regional office, and Global Services Engineering–Asia, which provides aftermarket repair design for the company’s businesses in the Asia-Pacific region.
The new Pratt & Whitney Component Solutions unit forms part of Pratt & Whitney’s $110 million investment in Seletar Aerospace Park, where the company is also building a new 180,000 ft2 facility to manufacture PurePower engine hybrid aluminum fan blades and high pressure turbine disks.
“This opening marks a major milestone for Pratt & Whitney and demonstrates our commitment to such an important region for our business,” commented Pratt & Whitney president Paul Adams. “Pratt & Whitney is proud of its long-standing presence in Singapore, which continues to grow today thanks to its highly-trained, technically-skilled workforce, and close proximity to our many customers in the Asia-Pacific region.”
The latest investments in Seletar bring Pratt & Whitney’s presence in Singapore to a total of nine businesses, making the island-state home to the company’s most comprehensive aftermarket presence in one location.
