The Singapore operation includes 15 new team members, including customer managers and engineers, CFirst event managers providing front-line support, and accessories specialists who provide support on the full complement of P&WC engines located in the region. These new employees are co-located with P&WC SEA, P&WC's repair and overhaul facility, opened in 1983, located in the Loyang Industrial Estate next to Singapore's Changi Airport.
