Pratt & Whitney transforms Middletown assembly area for new PurePower PW1100G-JM and F135 engines

Pratt & Whitney completed the first phase of an assembly-floor transformation project at its Middletown, Conn., facility that prepares the Engine Center to produce its portion of PurePower® PW1100G-JM engines for the Airbus A320neo and increases production capacity for the F135 engine powering the F-35 Lightning II for the U.S. Military. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. company.

Pratt & Whitney leadership and employees gathered today in Middletown for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark this significant milestone, which is part of a larger company initiative to transform Pratt & Whitney's manufacturing sites as they prepare to deliver a record volume of engines.

"This is a time of transformation at Pratt & Whitney," said Joe Sylvestro, vice president, Manufacturing Operations, Pratt & Whitney. "This new addition to the engine facility in Middletown will play a pivotal role in the production ramp-up for our PurePower engines. This achievement was truly a team effort and signifies our ongoing investment to meeting our customer commitments by delivering game-changing engine technology within a lean manufacturing operation."

The PurePower PW1100G-JM engines deliver benefits including double-digit reductions in fuel burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs compared with today's jet engines. The F135 engine powers the F-35 Lightning II – a stealthy, supersonic, multirole 5th Generation fighter designed for U.S. and international partner requirements.
