Pratt & Whitney’s (P&W) Oklahoma City expansion plans, announced at the Paris Air Show, are the beginning of likely more aerospace growth in the metro, said Roy Williams, president and CEO at the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber.
P&W is the world leader in design, manufacture, and service of aircraft and helicopter engines.
