SINGAPORE, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), today marked the official opening of Pratt & Whitney Component Solutions, the company's new repair and engineering facility at Singapore's Seletar Aerospace Park.

The new flagship facility performs certain PW4000 engine component repair and will house various office support departments, including the company's recently established regional office, and Global Services Engineering – Asia, which provides highly skilled aftermarket repair design for the company's businesses in the Asia Pacific region.

The new Pratt & Whitney Component Solutions unit forms part of Pratt & Whitney's US$110 million investment in Seletar Aerospace Park, where the company is also building a new 180,000 square-foot manufacturing facility to manufacture PurePower® engine hybrid aluminum fan blades and high pressure turbine disks.

"This opening marks a major milestone for Pratt & Whitney and demonstrates our commitment to such an important region for our business," said Pratt & Whitney President Paul Adams. "Pratt & Whitney is proud of its long-standing presence in Singapore, which continues to grow today thanks to its highly trained, technically skilled workforce, and close proximity to our many customers in the Asia Pacific region."

"Singapore has been very proud to work closely with Pratt & Whitney for many years," said Singapore's Minister for Trade & Industry Lim Hng Kiang. "We will continue to support Pratt & Whitney's drive to deliver dependable engines to the rest of the world. We have had more than 30 years of friendship with Pratt & Whitney, and we look forward to many more."

"We warmly welcome Pratt & Whitney's latest investment in Singapore, which marks yet another significant milestone in the partnership which has spanned over 30 years. Singapore is strongly committed to the aerospace industry, and we will continue to invest in talent and infrastructure to support the industry's growth here," said Yeoh Keat Chuan, Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board.

The latest investments in Seletar bring Pratt & Whitney's presence in Singapore to a total of nine businesses, making the island-state home to the company's most comprehensive aftermarket presence in one location.
