Pratt & Whitney expands engine repair supplier network

WASHINGTON, December 20, 2018

US-based Pratt & Whitney, a leading aerospace manufacturer with global service operations, said it will further expand its global network of providers that maintain the GTF engine to include five additional repair suppliers that will support the PW1100G-JM engine.

FAG Aerospace (Schaeffler), American Cladding Technologies, Tube Processing, MDS Coating Technologies and MB Aerospace will join other GTF maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) providers located around the world that are part of the growing network, said a statement from Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp.

Additionally, Horiguchi Engineering will join Dedienne Aerospace as an engine stand supplier for PW1100G-JM engines, but will not be part of the GTF MRO network, it said.

Heather Walton, senior director - aftermarket supply chain, Pratt & Whitney, said: “The GTF engine continues to revolutionise the aviation industry.”

“With exponential shop visit growth expected over the next few years, we are laser focused on establishing a supply base to support and deliver overall value to our GTF customers both now and into the future,” she said.

“We look forward to FAG Aerospace (Schaeffler), American Cladding Technologies, Tube Processing, MDS Coating Technologies, MB Aerospace and Horiguchi Engineering helping us to deliver world class service to our customers,” she added.

In April, Pratt & Whitney announced five repair suppliers had joined the network - Turbine Controls, StandardAero, TWIN MRO, ACMT and Lewis & Saunders.

The GTF MRO network is part of Pratt & Whitney's EngineWise service portfolio, which provides engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services to maximize engine performance and fleet availability, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
