Gold for MTU: German engine company receives Pratt & Whitney distinction

MTU Aero Engines, Germany's leading engine manufacturer, for the second time in a row has achieved gold status, the highest level in the supplier rating program of Pratt & Whitney's parent United Technologies Corporation (UTC). The official UTC Supplier Gold Award presentation took place in Munich in early March.

"We are proud and honored to have received this distinction from UTC for the second consecutive year," commented Dr. Anton Binder, Senior Vice President, Commercial Programs at MTU. "This award is testimony to our excellent standards of performance in the industry and will allow us to strengthen our partnership with Pratt & Whitney."

The UTC Supplier Gold Award is given every year to select suppliers and partners to the U.S. Group's companies. The criteria used to evaluate suppliers include superior quality and delivery performance, and customer satisfaction. "We scored extra marks also for the active involvement of our employees in all operational steps, the staff's continual updating on processes in briefings, and the notice boards we display everywhere on the shop floor to inform the workforce and customers," said Binder.

The award presentation at MTU in Munich was part of a ceremony witnessed by senior Pratt & Whitney Canada and MTU officials to celebrate a major milestone: the delivery of the 5,000th low-pressure turbine for the PW300 and PW500 series of engines. MTU holds stakes of up to 25 percent in these two programs; the propulsion systems power mid-size to large business jets.
