Washington – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) recognized the 90th anniversary of Pratt & Whitney. The company was incorporated on July 22, 1925.

“For ninety years, Pratt & Whitney has been a driving force in manufacturing research and innovation,” said Larson. “My father—like so many others in Connecticut—worked for Pratt & Whitney for most of his life. I’ve seen firsthand their impact not just on our economy, but on hardworking families throughout the state. Pratt & Whitney continues to invest in our community, providing its employees with greater access to a college education. They truly serve as a model for corporate excellence.  

“It’s been my great pleasure to help secure Pratt & Whitney as the sole provider of engines for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Here’s to ninety more years of keeping the eagle flying.”

Larson also took to the House Floor to deliver a one-minute speech commending Pratt & Whitney’s impact throughout the First District. Watch the speech at or click above:
