Default Pratt & Whitney Expanding Creating 177 New Jobs

Georgia development officials felt it was necessary to pay Pratt & Whitney $250,000 to pull the trigger on a $19.3 million expansion and upgrade at its Columbus plant.

The expansion will create 177 new high-paying jobs. Pratt & Whitney, a subsidiary of conglomerate United Technologies, opened its Columbus plant in 1983 with an initial investment topping $200 million.

Today, the Columbus Engine Center has 450 on its payroll, while a disk-forging operation employs 150. The investment announced by the company is aimed at handling additional engine overhaul and forging work for military and civilian jets.
