Turkish Technic to become engine maintenance center

Turkish Technic, Inc. has signed a joint agreement with Pratt&Whitney, a division of the American firm United Technologies Corporation, to set up a large-scale engine maintenance center.

The new center will be Pratt&Whitney’s eighth such global center in the world. Turkish Technic President İsmail Demir, Ph.D., said recently: “We view this joint enterprise as the success story of Turkish Technic, Inc., an experienced maintenance unit that was recently turned into a new and independent maintenance and repair center, and of Pratt&Whitney, which is both a manufacturer of original equipment and an independent engine repair and maintenance firm. This undertaking is a major step in our company strategy to become the best known and most preferred customer-centered maintenance and repair center in the region providing the highest quality service.” A regional leader in maintenance and repair, Turkish Technic, a subsidiary of Turkish Airlines, provides body, engine, spare power unit, landing gear and components maintenance services for Boeing and Airbus aircraft. With a skilled work force of over 3000 people employed at its maintenance center in Istanbul, Turkish Technic provides services to a number of customers in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and the Eastern Bloc countries.
