© MTU Aero Engines Polska 2019 Ceremony 10 years 16-05-2019MTU Aero Engines Polska: 10 Years

May 2019. Ten years ago, the first 200 employees at MTU Aero Engines Polska started producing their first engine components. Today, the site in the Polish Aviation Valley near Rzeszów has about 900 employees – and is indispensable in the production network of Germany's leading engine manufacturer. On May 16, a ceremony was held with employees and representatives from local politics and businesses to celebrate this milestone.

In addition to development and manufacturing activities, MTU’ Polish subsidiary focuses on the production of components, module assembly and parts repair. As such, the facility is involved in all major commercial MTU programs, including engines for the Airbus A220, A320 and A320neo families, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 777X jets, and business jet programs for Cessna and Gulfstream. The same applies to General Electric's (GE) LM6000 series of industrial gas turbines. The facility covers the entire value chain, from development – aerodynamic design, structural mechanics and thermodynamic optimization – to production and repair.

The second expansion phase began in November 2018. It will add a further 11,400 square meters of floor space to the existing facility within about a year. On the one hand, to make room for new technologies such as additive manufacturing. And on the other hand, to be able to cope with the increasing production quantities of components for the latest geared turbofan engines. With commissioning scheduled for the end of 2019, the site's total operating area will increase to almost 40,000 square meters and will create a growing workforce of over 900 employees.
