Pratt & Whitney Singapore Manufacturing broke ground on a new facility at the Seletar Aerospace Park. This new production facility will manufacture fan blades and high pressure turbine disks for Pratt & Whitney's PurePower Geared Turbofan engines. This new 180,000 square foot facility will border Pratt & Whitney's existing flagship facility at Seletar , Pratt & Whitney Singapore Component Repair, further expanding the company's 30-year presence in the country. Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies, has invested nearly $110M in the development of these two new facilities. With the construction of this new facility, Pratt & Whitney's work force in Singapore is expected to increase to more than 2,500 people over the next five years, making it home to the company's most comprehensive aftermarket presence in one location.
