By: Rain Stockton

AeroThrust signed a $100 million Global Service Partners (GSP) part replacement and repair agreement with Pratt & Whitney, a United Technologies Corp. company. The five-year agreement states that Pratt & Whitney will provide JT8D turbine airfoil repairs as well as replacement parts for AeroThrust. Prior to this recent agreement, the two had an agreement for JT8D part repairs which expired in March. The new agreement, therefore, renews and extends the existing agreement.

According to Jose Leon, the Senior Vice President of AeroThrust, they were looking for JT8D part repairs and scrap replacement parts. Fortunately, Pratt & Whitney offered Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) value at a competitive price for part repairs as well as for both new and used materials.

Jim Keenan, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners, said that Pratt & Whitney's on of a kind and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) offerings, 24/7 help center and performance were the major factors to winning the said agreement. He added that they, too, are looking forward to a continued and broadened relationship with their partner.
