Pratt & Whitney announces it has entered into strategic long-term agreement with Dedienne Aerospace for Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine stands at the MRO Americas Conference in Orlando, FL.

“It is imperative for us to set up a worldwide supplier network that can guarantee the capacity we will need to meet the needs of our customers,” says Heather Walton, senior director, Aftermarket Supply Chain. “These long-term agreements, which include competitive KPIs for turnaround times and cost recovery, will help Pratt & Whitney support airline customers, programs and aftermarket facilities.”
“This is another step forward for us, and we are very proud to have been chosen by Pratt & Whitney. We are now a part of this incredible Geared Turbofan journey. The customer will benefit from our expertise and our ability to deliver this important development program,” says Karel Volot, president and CEO of Dedienne Aerospace LLC.
Under the five-year agreement, Dedienne Aerospace, which specializes in aerospace maintenance tooling for civil and defense markets, will provide engine stands for the PW1100G-JM engine.
In addition to the long-term agreement, Dedienne Aerospace and Pratt & Whitney announce a license agreement for PW1100 engine stands to support operations for all airline customers effective immediately.
