Production Ramp Up at Pratt & Whitney Featured on CPTV 'Made in Connecticut' Series

Pratt & Whitney was recently featured on Connecticut Public Television's "Made in Connecticut" series. The segment highlights how the company is transforming its operations and supply chain in preparation for the projected ramp up of the F135 engine program and the PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ PW1100G-JM engine for the Airbus A320neo family.

While Pratt & Whitney has a history of new engine innovation, the difference now is the way the company is manufacturing, assembling and testing these new cutting-edge products. The CPTV program explores Pratt & Whitney's manufacturing technology, innovation, and numerous benefits the ramp up will bring to the company's sites and suppliers across the state.

The segment includes interviews with Tom Prete, vice president, Engineering; Jessica Duke, engine assembly technician; Tom Mayes, general manager, Engine Centers and Compression Module Centers; Jill Albertelli, vice president, NGPF-30K Programs, and former vice president, Supply Management; John Guidone, product director, P&W Middletown Engine Center; and Ted Sluis, NGPF Operations manager.

The "Made in Connecticut" series is a three-year initiative produced by the Connecticut Public Broadcast Network for air on its television, radio and digital platforms focusing on those initiatives that exemplify this state's manufacturing leadership.
