Pratt & Whitney airplane engine maker to close Aeropower plant in San Diego

SAN DIEGO - Engine maker Pratt & Whitney is leaving Southern California at a cost of 530 jobs, consolidating its operations as defence spending contracts.

U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1hP6ZCn) says the defence contractor announced Thursday that it plans to close its AeroPower facility in San Diego over the next two years.

AeroPower makes auxiliary power units for military and commercial airplanes.

The company says the move is needed to maintain competitiveness.

AeroPower's military business will move to Pratt & Whitney's Military Engines organization. The company is considering relocating operations to existing facilities in Florida, Georgia and Texas.

The commercial side will go to Pratt & Whitney Canada, with much of the actual work being done in Poland.
