The network of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities servicing Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engines continues to grow for Pratt & Whitney’s GTF customers. More than 40 repair and overhaul facilities have signed up to be repair providers for the GTF engine family says Pratt & Whitney.
“At Pratt & Whitney, we are intently focused on providing best-in-class service to our customers, day in and day out,” said Joe Sylvestro, vice president, Global Aftermarket Operations, Pratt & Whitney. “We have built the GTF MRO network to have an extensive global reach with various engine centers and repair facilities. With our continued investment in technology, our facilities and our industry-leading workforce, we are well prepared to meet the ever-growing GTF MRO backlog.”
The GTF MRO network includes Pratt & Whitney, MTU Aero Engines (MTU), Japanese Aero Engines Corporation (JAEC), Lufthansa Technik (LHT) and most recently, Delta TechOps. By 2020, there will be 10 active GTF MRO engine centers, P&W says.
As engine volume grows, the network will continue to expand to include other worldwide airline and MRO facilities. The GTF MRO network is part of Pratt & Whitney’s EngineWise services solutions, which provides engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services.
