Pratt & Whitney Plans Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Depot Operations Hub

Aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney, a Raytheon Technologies business, plans to establish a new sustainment facility in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The company expects to invest $225 million through 2028.

The 845,000-square-foot facility will be an expansion of the company’s operations near Tinker Air Force Base and will act as a hub for depot operations for all military engines. The investment will consolidate six existing sites, bringing all disciplines into the two locations.

“Pratt & Whitney’s Oklahoma City site plays a critical role in our global sustainment network,” said Jill Albertelli, president, Pratt & Whitney Military Engines. “Last year, the team achieved record output for the F117, F119, and F135 Heavy Maintenance Centers, this investment in a new facility will further expand our capabilities and reaffirm our commitment to our customer for years to come. We are grateful for the support provided by our partner, the United States Air Force, and by the state of Oklahoma and the local community.”

East Hartford, Connecticut-based Pratt & Whitney is an American aerospace manufacturer with global service operations. The company’s aircraft engines are widely used in both civil aviation and military aviation.

“This is an exciting announcement for Oklahoma and our growing international dominance in the aerospace and defense industry,” noted Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt. “This $255 million investment in a world-class sustainment center helps strengthen Oklahoma’s position as the MRO capital of the world and I am thrilled for Pratt & Whitney to continue to invest and expand in our state.”

“We have been honored to partner with Pratt & Whitney and coordinate the Oklahoma City team as they developed this project,” said Christy Gillenwater, President and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. “We appreciate the work of our additional partners, including the Oklahoma Industries Authority and Alliance for Economic Development for their work on the site acquisition. Pratt & Whitney has been a critical part of our business community for many years, and we look forward to a long relationship, working together to support their mission.”
