Pratt & Whitney Georgia Expansion Takes Off at Paris Air Show
20 Jun 2023
While attending the 2023 Paris Air Show in France, Governor Brian P. Kemp today announced that Pratt & Whitney - an RTX business specializing in aircraft and helicopter engines - will expand their operations in Columbus, Georgia. This project will create nearly 400 new jobs and bring $206 million in investment to Muscogee County.
“Not every state has the opportunity to announce new jobs and opportunities with an industry leader and great partner like Pratt & Whitney at the Paris Air Show,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “Georgia is a top five exporter of aerospace products in the U.S., totaling $9.2 billion in 2022, alone. From the flights that go through the world’s most utilized airport to the engines in the very airplanes, the Peach State is crucial to the movement of goods and products. Pratt & Whitney's decision to expand will only further that reputation.”
