UTRC Unveils Expanded Innovation Hub



United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) has unveiled its new and expanded $60 million state-of-the-art innovation hub on its East Hartford campus.

This research and development facility will enhance global innovation at UTC and its businesses. The company also announced two additional major investments planned for its East Hartford campus - a $75 million Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence and a $40 million Engine Compressor Research facility.

The new innovation hub at UTRC's East Hartford headquarters includes 185,000 sq. ft. of new and renovated office and laboratory space. The $60 million build out was enabled through a collaboration with the state of Connecticut through the historic 2014 Connecticut Aerospace Reinvestment Act (CARA). This investment enables UTRC to expand its core capabilities in advanced materials, measurement sciences, sensor technologies, environmental sciences, autonomous systems and human-collaborative robotics.

The new Additive Manufacturing facility will accelerate deployment of a broad range of metal and polymer additive technologies across UTC businesses. In the new Engine Compressor Research facility, UTRC and Pratt & Whitney will develop and mature advanced compressor technologies for future commercial and military engines.

"Global innovation at UTC begins right here at the Research Center in East Hartford," said Dr. David Parekh, Corporate Vice President, Research, and Director, UTRC. "Today we are unveiling a clear demonstration of UTC's commitment to investing in the breakthrough technologies that will help shape our future."

"Since 1929, UTRC has served as a strategic partner to all UTC businesses, driving the newest and best advances in aerospace and commercial building technologies," said Parekh. "This investment in our headquarters and our current and future innovators will allow us to remain global leaders for decades to come."

The innovation hub at UTRC is seeking LEED Gold certification with the U.S. Green Building Council.
