Vector Aerospace breaks ground this month for its PW150A engine facility at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park. The new 86,000-sq-ft center will include a 56,000-sq-ft Pratt and Whitney designated overhaul facility with full engine overhaul and test capability. Vector expects the facility to open next year.
The company will be investing more than $40 million in the construction, tooling and equipping of the facility. When fully operational, it is expected to employ up to 140 people in repair, test, engineering, commercial and support roles.
The facility is ideally situated to expand its products, capacity and services in the longer term. Declan O’Shea, president and CEO, said, “In our overall business expansion plan, the South East Asian market is extremely important to us because of its geographic location, strong projected growth and our customer base. We recognize theimmense importance of this market and are taking these steps to expand our presence here with close proximity to our customers.”
