The award recognizes Pratt & Whitney Canada's outstanding performance in Southeast Asia on three levels: competition strategy, impact on value and brand positioning.

"It is a testament to the steadfast dedication and talent of our 150 employees and an unwavering commitment to our customers in the Asia-Pacific region during the past 25 years."

In addition, the Company's ability to provide superior customer service through its Customer First Centre scored high points with the awards committee, as did its ability to leverage the Pratt & Whitney Canada brand and specialized engine capabilities to better serve customer needs in the Asia-Pacific region.
