Pratt & Whitney has announced its plans to open a world-class global supply chain support centre in Bengaluru, India. The India Capability Centre (ICC) will employ hundreds of analysts and data scientists to augment Pratt & Whitney’s global supply chain, focused on digital capabilities.
The centre began recruiting for its first tranche of 160 aerospace analysts and data scientists and is expected to begin initial operations by April 2022. The centre will be co-located at Collins Aerospace’s campus in Yelahanka, Bengaluru.
“India provides the perfect ecosystem of aerospace talent, innovation and capabilities for us,” said Ashmita Sethi, President and Country Head, Pratt & Whitney. “Over the years we have made significant investments, including our state-of-the-art India Customer Training Centre in Hyderabad and our advanced R&D centre in Bengaluru. Our new centre is a great example of our continued commitment to India and we aim to grow our in-country capabilities further.”
The India Capability Center will collaborate with teams across Pratt & Whitney’s global supply chain, and will focus on supply chain operations, procurement, and digital analytics.
