Ontic, a provider of extended life solutions for OEM legacy products, has acquired the manufacturing rights from Pratt & Whitney Canada to additional JT15D engine parts, in what constitutes the fourth phase of a process that started back in 2015.

This is Ontic's fourth acquisition from Pratt & Whitney, which adds to its growing portfolio of engine support capabilities. Ontic will manufacture and sell the additional JT15D components from its Chatsworth, California facility and the parts will continue to be distributed through the JT15D new parts distributor, Boeing Distribution.

“We are excited to announce this latest transaction, which continues the strong relationship Ontic has with Pratt & Whitney Canada and expands our critical support of the JT15D engine in the market,” states Gareth Blackbird, VP and chief commercial officer of Ontic. “The JT15D engine aligns with our commitment to support legacy products. This continues the logical progression and expansion of our current services to our OEM partners. We value our relationship with Pratt & Whitney Canada and are looking forward to continue working with it.”

With more than 6,700 engines produced since the 1970s, the JT15D is used on a wide range of business aircraft, including the Cessna Citation II, Hawker 400A and Cessna Citation V and the T1-A JayHawk. Ontic's global legacy focus is supported by manufacturing and MRO facilities in Chatsworth, California; Creedmoor, North Carolina; Plainview, New York; Cheltenham in the United Kingdom and in Singapore.
