History of MTU AENA

MTU Aero Engines North America (AENA) was founded in 2000 to function as the engineering integration team in support of all of our partnership programs with Pratt & Whitney. As a result, AENA hired and developed experienced engineers to make sound decisions for the development of new and innovative products. As a subsidiary of MTU Aero Engines, AENA was structured as an inter-company engineering services business unit designed to alleviate capacity issues.

The GP7000 engine program allowed AENA to gain a strong reputation in engineering design while supporting the Engine Alliance consortium and delivering high-quality MTU engine hardware on time. Since then, AENA has diversified and used our experienced engineering resources to provide third-party engineering services to customers in the aerospace and industrial gas turbine industry. AENA’s sites throughout North America are strategically located near key customers to enhance the overall efficiency of completing important tasks.
