Benoit Beaudoin, P&WC Operations Team Receive James C. Floyd Award

Presented Each Year By The Aerospace Industries Association of Canada For Aerospace Achievement

The Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) operations team, led by Benoit Beaudoin, Vice President, Operations, received the James C. Floyd Award by the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC) for their exceptional contributions to Canadian aerospace innovation and leadership in advanced manufacturing and workforce development.

"The creation of the Mirabel Aerospace Center and the Advanced Manufacturing Centers are a significant achievement that have revolutionized manufacturing innovation and productivity not only for Pratt & Whitney Canada, but for their Canadian aerospace suppliers and partners as well," said Jim Quick, President and CEO of AIAC. "Mr. Beaudoin and his team have led the development of next-generation advanced manufacturing facilities and processes, making Canadian aerospace more competitive and creating new opportunities for Canadian aerospace employees. We are proud to congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition of their success."

"Innovation is at the heart of what we do at Pratt & Whitney Canada, and we are honored to accept this in recognition of our investment in advanced manufacturing technology and the skills of our Canadian workforce," said Benoit Beaudoin (pictured, below). "What we accomplished at the Mirabel Aerospace Center and the Advanced Manufacturing Centers was truly a collaborative effort, bearing the fingerprints of many members of the aerospace industry; all of whom embraced the challenge of creating a blueprint for the future of Canadian aerospace manufacturing."

The industrialization of the Mirabel Aerospace Center and the Advanced Manufacturing Centers (AMCs) in Longueuil and Halifax was initiated with the launch of the Pratt & Whitney Next-Generation PurePower engine family. The AMCs are machining centres which manufacture highly complex engine components, integrating advanced machining, automation, machine intelligence and logistics technologies. The Mirabel Aerospace Center (MAC) is a 300,000 square foot, LEED Gold certified engine assembly and flight test facility for engines including the PW814GA which powers the Gulfstream G500 and the PW1524G Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine which powers the Bombardier C Series aircraft. These next-generation aerospace facilities, which include best-in-class productivity and machining capability, raise industry standards for lean manufacturing, health and safety, environmental sustainability and high-performance work systems. The results demonstrate the innovation and technologies which will be needed to maintain Canada as a global leader in aerospace manufacturing in the future.
