Winnipeg, Canada – June 19, 2009 – StandardAero is moving its Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW100 Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) from The Netherlands to Winnipeg, Canada. This P&WC approved PW100 overhaul facility will provide heavy repair, engine overhaul, and line-replaceable-unit (LRU) overhaul services. A newly created turboprop business unit in support of P&WC products will unite the PW100 and the PT6 DOFs, facilitating the incorporation of StandardAero’s P&WC turboprop expertise into one dedicated Winnipeg facility.
“This new turboprop business unit is a significant enhancement to the P&WC services offered by StandardAero,” said Manny Atwal, General Manager of the new P&WC turboprop business unit. “The combined business unit will enable us to provide the best support to our customers.”
StandardAero’s existing PW100 facility in Tilburg, The Netherlands will transition into a European Sales and Service Center. The facility will continue to perform Rolls Royce GEM Maintenance, as well as maintaining field service, and test capabilities for the PT6 and PW100 engine models, and field service and light repair capabilities for the PW600 engine.
