Honeywell has opened a new facility near its Honeywell Aerospace headquarters in Phoenix dedicated to maintenance for the U.S. military T55 turboshaft helicopter engines.
The new Center for Excellence was established after Honeywell secured approval from the U.S. Army through a product verification audit. It brings together engineering, production, repair and overhaul work for the T55 engine to optimize operations, the company said.
The Honeywell Aerospace campus is off Sky Harbor Circle, just west of Interstate 10.
By putting repair and overhaul work together in the same space as new engine production, the company said its trained technicians can more easily share knowledge and speed up repair and overhaul work. It also improves troubleshooting and will help with future upgrades.
