IncSmart Connecticut (Small Business and Startups) - Pratt & Whitney of Connecticut is investing $1.3 billion in upgrading its manufacturing and centers in America to meet the demands for its new GTF Engines. This new program includes a $400 million expansion of 2 Connecticut plants. The Geared Turbofan technology already has a backlog of over 8,000 GTF engine orders. The new engine is quieter and more efficient. The geared turbofan is the future of aviation. 80% of the engine parts come from a supply chain of small and medium-size companies. The announcement was made during President Trump’s Made in America week.
Pratt & Whitney is currently seeking 500 people for jobs in Connecticut and is hiring thousands of manufacturing employees in the U.S. They have added 4,500 new employees over the last 18 months. Then total new hires will rise to 25,000 and they will continue to invest in facilities and supply chain. This investment will bring $770 million dollars to local companies that support the GTF engine program.
