P&W’s supply chain unit merges into QuEST Global

Tags: News

Objective of the association is to cut product development costs

The India-based supply chain unit of Pratt & Whitney, the US-based aerospace manufacturer with global service operations and an arm of United Technologies Corporation, will now get integrated into the engineering services arm of QuEST Global Engineering.

This comes close on the heels of QuEST Global acquiring Beeken TechQuest and its Bangalore based arm, UFT Beeken Engineering Services, in order to diversify and consolidate its position in oil and gas sector.

Pratt & Whitney is a global leader in designing, manufacturing and service of aircraft engines, auxiliary and ground power units and small turbojet propulsion products. And the latest move aims at expanding QuEST Global’s supply chain services infrastructure to close proximity of its customer’s supply base.

Confirming the development, Ajit Prabhu, chairman & CEO, QuEST Global Engineering, said, “QuEST Global combines its engineering pedigree with its supply chain services capabilities to offer value added services to our customers and this integration is in line with our growth strategy. This association comes with immense experience and technical expertise.”

The whole objective is to help its clients cut product development costs, shorten lead times, extend capacity and maximise availability of engineering resources by providing support across the complete product life cycle from design and modelling through analysis, prototyping, automation, data documentation, instrumentation and controls, embedded systems development, manufacturing support and vendor management, he said.

Interestingly, QuEST Global has been associated with P&W since 2002 in a different capacity — providing services covering the entire product lifecycle including product development, aftermarket services, configuration management, testing services, manufacturing engineering, hardware management, technical data and purchase order management and others. The integration of businesses will now enhance capability and help serving global needs.
