Tradition and innovation
Founded in 1934 as BMW Flugmotorenbau GmbH, the company now has more than 10,000 employees worldwide. For many decades, today's MTU Aero Engines has been one of the leading global system manufacturers of engine components.
As a partner of the leading engine manufacturers, MTU supplies complete assemblies and must ensure the production of spare parts for several decades. With its headquarters in Munich, the German company develops and produces high-precision core components such as high-pressure compressors, low-pressure turbines and turbine intermediate housings for engines for both military and civil aviation.
MTU focuses on the product groups of housings, blisk (blade integrated disk), turbine disks and blades. In civil aviation, about 30 % of all aircrafts currently fly with components from MTU. Customers include Pratt & Whitney, GE Aviation and military engine consortia. Another important pillar is the maintenance business.
