SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – October 6, 2021 – StandardAero announced today that it has signed an agreement with joint venture partners Pratt & Whitney, a division of Raytheon Technologies (RTX), and SIA Engineering Company Limited (SIAEC) for the purchase of 100% ownership stake in Singapore-based component repair facility, Asian Surface Technologies Private Limited (AST).
AST was founded in 1994 to provide overhaul services for the PW4000 jet engine fan blades and specialized thermal spray coating services for the aerospace and oil & gas industries. Over the past twenty-seven years, AST has provided high technology hard face coatings and component repairs to customers in the Asia-Pac region and around the world.
