EAST HARTFORD, Conn., April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners' Turkish Engine Center recently celebrated delivery of its 100th overhauled CFM56® engine to Turkish Airlines. The Turkish Engine Center is a joint venture between Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX); and Turkish Technic, a division of Turkish Airlines.

"This engine delivery to Turkish Airlines marks a new milestone for the Turkish Engine Center," said Jerry Tarnacki, Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners vice president. "The Turkish Engine Center has achieved proven record of service excellence while rapidly expanding its customer base. I look forward to recognizing many more similar milestones with the Turkish Engine Center team."

"The Turkish Engine Center has proven 100 times it is able to provide high quality engine repair and overhaul services with full customer satisfaction to its customers all over the world."

The Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners Turkish Engine Center is a state-of-the art facility with extensive part repair capacity that helps reduce engine overhaul costs and turnaround times.
