Pratt & Whitney Marks 25 Years of Aerospace Excellence in Georgia

DALLAS, April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MRO Americas -- Pratt & Whitney's aerospace presence in Georgia, which includes the Columbus Engine Center, Georgia Forging Business and Precision Components International, is celebrating 25 years of successful operations.

The first operation at the site was the Georgia Forging Business that provides engine disks and seals using a unique isothermal forging process based on powder metallurgy and super-plastic forming technology developed and patented by Pratt & Whitney. Today, every Pratt & Whitney engine relies on isothermal forgings.

In 1994, the airfoil business was split to form a joint venture between Pratt & Whitney and the Wertheimer Group called Precision Components International (PCI). PCI initially manufactured primarily aerospace components but in the past five years has diversified into the power generation, medical and golf industries.

The Columbus Engine Center was established in 1996 to overhaul JT8D engines. It transitioned to V2500 engine overhaul in 2002. Today, the Columbus Engine Center is among leading providers of V2500 engine overhaul and has overhauled more than 700 V2500 engines. Earlier this year, the engine center became the first in the world to complete an IAE V2500-A5 engine retrofit to the V2500 SelectOne(TM) engine configuration.

"As we mark a quarter century in operation in Georgia, we continue to strengthen our processes, delivery and customer focus," said Tom Mayes, vice president, Global Engine Centers, Pratt & Whitney. "We take pride in helping to lower operating costs for our airline customers and work hard to offer them the most advanced technology and innovation for their engines. This site is a great example of how to adjust to customer needs and remain successful."

Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, space propulsion systems and industrial gas turbines. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX). United Technologies, based in Hartford, Connecticut, is a diversified company providing high technology products and services to the global aerospace and building industries.
