Pratt & Whitney Launches First Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Singapore

Pratt & Whitney reported an increase in production at its first advanced manufacturing facility in Singapore in order to help with Pratt & Whitney's 2018 ramp-up of production.

According to a media release, this facility is operated by P&W NGPF Manufacturing Company Singapore, a joint venture with Hanwha Techwin Co. This increase in production supports the recent announcement by Singapore's Economic Development Board to achieve S$4 billion (~US$3 billion) in manufacturing net output by 2020 for the country's aerospace industry. Pratt & Whitney's Asia Pacific operations are also located in China, India and New Zealand.

Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp.

The Company said that using adaptive machining and cutting-edge automated inspection systems, as well as the latest in advanced manufacturing tools and processes, the facility's production of fan blades and turbine disks highly complex key components of the Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine family has steadily increased since its official opening in 2016.

Full production capacity for the plant is expected to be achieved by early 2019.

"Pratt & Whitney is committed to becoming a major contributor to the booming manufacturing market in Singapore and across the Asia Pacific region," said Marc Paquet, Pratt & Whitney Manufacturing Singapore General Manager. "We employ state-of-the-art intelligent technologies and innovative manufacturing lines to produce the world's most advanced engine parts and deliver products more quickly and with higher quality. The steady growth of our Singapore manufacturing facility's production is a testament to an increasing demand in Asia Pacific for our GTF engines. Delivering 16 percent better fuel efficiency, our GTF engines have been selected by more than 80 customers worldwide and are equipped to drive the next generation of efficient, sustainable air travel."
