Pratt & Whitney Awarded $592 Million Federal Contract

October 17, 2014

North Berwick defense contractor Pratt & Whitney announced this week that it has been awarded a $592 million Federal contract to make propulsion systems and engines for 36 F-35 fighter jets.  The company was awarded a contract last autumn under the same program, and expects to be awarded a contract for another 48 engines.

This contract is good news for Sanford: almost 20% of the Pratt & Whitney workforce live in Sanford or Springvale – the largest share of Pratt & Whitney employees of any community in the region.
