Raytheon Technologies said its Pratt & Whitney business plans to invest $206 million to expand its footprint and capabilities in Columbus, Georgia, where it maintains commercial and military engine programs as well as builds components.
The investment is expected to create around 400 new jobs by the end of 2028 and will also be used to buy new machinery and equipment. In addition, the investment will be used for an 81,000-square-foot expansion of the Columbus Engine Center.
“This investment will help ensure that we have the infrastructure, machinery and equipment upgrades in place to provide the best products and services to our customers worldwide,” said Shane Eddy, president of Pratt & Whitney.
