Pratt & Whitney qualifies Fokker Aerostructures as a production source for the F135 static structure, awards follow-on contract for additional work

Pratt & Whitney has completed the first article inspection of a production quality static structure for the F135 engine produced by Fokker Aerostructures, a company based in The Netherlands. In addition, Pratt & Whitney has signed a Letter of Intent with Fokker to produce F135 engine synchronizing rings. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) company.

"We are very pleased to accept this first production quality static structure for the F135 engine produced by Fokker," said Warren Boley, President of Pratt & Whitney military engines. "The letter of intent for additional work on the F135 illustrates our confidence in Fokker as a best value source, to use their state-of-art high-speed machining capability to deliver high-quality components for the F135 engine."

"Fokker is very proud of this achievement; this represents an important step forward for the Dutch Industrial Participation in the JSF and F135 program," said Hans Buthker, President of Fokker Aerostructures. "Fokker is looking forward to further intensify and expand its cooperation with Pratt & Whitney in the near and long-term future."

Fokker Aerostructures designs, develops and produces light-weight structures for the aerospace and defense industry. Fokker Aerostructures is a strategic unit of Fokker Aerospace Group.

"We have been working with Dutch manufacturing companies for almost 30 years supporting our F100 family of engines as well as commercial product lines, and we are proud of this continuing relationship," Boley said.
