EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Whitney, a global leader in commercial and military jet engines and a division of United Technologies Corp.

With the addition of this dedicated 60,000 square-foot R&D facility, Pratt & Whitney will add dozens of employees focused on the design, development and production of CMCs for aerospace applications. Compared to traditional materials in the hot section of a jet engine, CMCs are known to be lighter and have higher temperature capability, which can enable improved thermal efficiency for gas turbine engines. CMCs will enhance Pratt & Whitney's next-generation commercial and military engines to deliver benefits that include increased range, increased fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

"Pratt & Whitney views CMCs as an enabling technology," said Meggan Harris, senior director, CMCs, Pratt & Whitney. "This material will allow us to offer key capabilities for both our commercial and military customers, as their needs for ever-better fuel efficiency over longer flight times continue to evolve."

"We're excited to establish a dedicated team of engineers and technicians working on the next generation of this potentially disruptive technology in a collaborative space," said Andy Lazur, general manager of the Pratt & Whitney Carlsbad facility. "This new facility is a testament to Pratt & Whitney's commitment to innovation. This novel material technology enables us to provide dependable engines with enhanced performance to our customers."

Open positions can be viewed here and are posted to the LinkedIn page for the facility.
