BRIDGEPORT, West Virginia, December 5, 2019 Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), today announced a $30 million US investment in its engine services facility in Bridgeport, West Virginia for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of PW800 engines. Specifically, the site will service the market leading PW814GA and PW815GA engines that power the Gulfstream G500 and G600 aircraft, respectively, with the capacity to expand its capabilities to other PW800 engine models in the future.
