Pratt & Whitney signs agreement with Australian supplier Broens Industries for F135 engine work

Pratt & Whitney has selected Broens Industries to design and manufacture a critical component as part of the maintenance and overhaul solution for the F135 propulsion system powering the F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft. This new order, signed today at the Farnborough Air Show, has a potential value of more than $7 million. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) company.

"Broens has demonstrated the ability to deliver the most innovative solution for removal and installation of the F135 engine's gearbox with its technologically-advanced ground support equipment, designed and built specifically for the F135 engine program," said Bennett Croswell, vice president, Pratt & Whitney F135/F119 engine programs. "We look forward to a long working relationship with Broens."

Pratt & Whitney awarded Broens Industries a purchase order to develop and manufacture ground support equipment for the F135 engine program, a long-term solution for removing and installing the engine gearbox.

"We are committed to compete on the international stage, and we're delighted to work with Pratt & Whitney on this project as part of our strategy to become a consistent participant in the Global Supply Chains for Aerospace components, Tooling and Ground Support Equipment," said Carlos Broens, managing director of Broens Industries.

Broens Industries Pty Ltd is an Australian privately owned global provider who specializes in design, manufacturing and engineering solutions for the Automotive, Aerospace, Marine, Mining, Defence and General Precision Engineering industries. Broens is located in New South Wales, Australia.

For nine years and more than 17,600 test hours, Pratt & Whitney has been designing, developing and testing the F135 to deliver the most advanced fifth generation fighter engine for the U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy, as well as eight international partner countries.

The F135 propulsion system powers the F-35 Lightning II and has proven it can meet diverse aircraft requirements. The ground and flight test experience demonstrates the maturity and the associated reliability of the F135 engine for armed forces around the world.
