Pratt & Whitney has announced the establishment of its new India Digital Capability Centre (IDCC) in Bengaluru, India.

The new centre will accelerate innovation and drive digital and business transformation for Pratt & Whitney worldwide.

The facility will be co-located with Pratt & Whitney’s engineering and supply chain operations centers of excellence. The location will also facilitate close collaboration with other RTX businesses and functions in India including Collins Aerospace and RTX Enterprise Services, respectively.

“The expansion of Pratt & Whitney’s digital technology presence in Bengaluru will allow us to leverage India’s aviation and technology talent and accelerate our digital transformation,” said Rahul Dharni, vice president and global chief information officer, Pratt & Whitney.

Pratt & Whitney has begun recruiting its first tranche of employees for the IDCC and is expected to grow to over 300 employees by 2027.

The centre will focus on delivering multiple digital technology capabilities across various priority areas of Pratt & Whitney’s digital transformation.

With $40 million already invested in engineering and supply chain operations centres in the past two years, Pratt & Whitney continues to grow its presence in India with this additional multi-million-dollar investment in the IDCC.

Pratt & Whitney’s other investments in-country include a state-of-the-art India Customer Training Centre in Hyderabad and its research and development collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science also in Bengaluru.

Pratt & Whitney sourced over $500 million in engineering services in India over the past two decades, to include nearly $55 million in the past 10 years from leading aerospace suppliers in India.
