New Technology Takes To The Skies.

Message from President

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Aero Engines, Ltd. (MHIAEL) is one of the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) group companies established to strengthen its aircraft engine business through advanced cooperation with other companies to address the significantly growing commercial aviation demands. Receiving investments from the Development Bank of Japan Inc. (DBJ) and IHI Corporation (IHI), MHIAEL was established on October 1, 2014 by ways of a company split (Ownership ratio: MHI 89%, DBJ 10%, and IHI 1%).

Our broad business portfolio currently includes the joint development and production of the Rolls-Royce Trent1000 engine for the Boeing 787 and the TrentXWB engine for the Airbus A350XWB, the Pratt & Whitney PurePower ®PW1100G-JM engine for the Airbus A320neo and PW1200G engine for Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation's MRJ, and the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210 engine for the Sikorsky S-76D and Leonardo (previously known as AgustaWestland) AW169. Final assembly and test of the PW1200G engine, which will be the final production assembly and test of a passenger aircraft engine first-ever performed in Japan, will not only become one of the major highlights of our broad program responsibilities, but will also set a significant milestone in the history of Japanese aerospace industry. Maintenance, repair and overhaul services for commercial engines, which we are currently serving many airline operators worldwide, is also contributing in broadening our business portfolio. In the defense field, we are taking charge of designing, manufacturing and repairing engines, including the domestic developed TS1 engine mounted on the observation helicopter OH-1, contributing to the security of our country.

Specialized in the hot section engineering including combustor and turbine of aircraft jet engines, our unique technology and expertise in development, design, and manufacturing allows us to possess significantly important position in joint development and production of the world's most advanced fuel-efficient and eco-friendly jet engines with engine OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers). While the commercial aviation market is expected to at least double in scale in the next 20 years, MHIAEL will remarkably expand its business scale at a pace faster than that of the market.

We will make use of our highest quality and unique "skills," which are our advantage, to sensitively meet customer needs and provide air travel passengers with safety and security, and thereby provide products and services that can contribute to international society.
