SR Technics Joins Pratt & Whitney GTF MRO Network
Zurich-based SR Technics joined the Pratt & Whitney GTF MRO Network, offering new service on the PW1100G-JM engines for the A320neo, including full disassembly, assembly, and test capabilities.
The long-term commitment should enable SR Technics to enhance its repair capability and overall competitiveness. It also should secure and expand its workforce in Switzerland by up to 400 new jobs by 2024 to meet the new demand.
In addition, investments will be made in facilities at the Zurich-Airport site, such as special tools and dedicated maintenance equipment including a new test cell to accommodate the new maintenance work.
“We are very excited to join the esteemed Pratt & Whitney GTF MRO network,” SR Technics CEO Jean-Marc Lenz said. The new agreement is part of the company’s strategy to extend its capabilities by providing maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the GTF engine at its facilities in Zurich.
“The GTF engine and its latest GTF Advantage™ configuration serve as the most fuel-efficient and sustainable single-aisle aircraft engines in the aviation industry,” Executive Director GTF Engine Aftermarket at Pratt & Whitney, Marc Meredith said. “With increasing engine orders, we continue to grow our MRO presence with capable, quality maintenance providers to ensure our proximity to customers.”
The GTF MRO network is part of Pratt & Whitney’s EngineWise® solutions, which provide engine operators with a variety of aftermarket services resulting in long-term, sustainable value.
