Pratt & Whitney formally opened its new Engineering and Technology Center on Nov. 11, 2017. The new state-of-the-art building will serve as the company's world-class engineering facility.
Pratt & Whitney is investing $1.3 billion in upgrading and updating its manufacturing and service centers to meet the demands of the Geared Turbofan engine program.
Pratt & Whitney will invest approximately $386 million in its Columbus, Georgia, facility to increase the production of parts and maintenance services and to reduce costs for new and existing engine programs. The investments will go toward the purchase of automated machinery and equipment upgrades and construction of two new buildings on the property.
