(Hartford Courant, 10/22/17)
Nearly five months after United Technologies Corp. opened its $60 million refurbished research center, researchers on Friday showed off its additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence and other projects.
David Parekh, corporate vice president for research and director of the United Technologies Research Center, said scheduling a media day for reporters helps boost the center’s visibility among customers, a global workforce and researchers who may want to come to work at the East Hartford site.
“We’re seeking to bring in the next generation of talent,” he said.
The research center helps develop the technology that drives UTC’s businesses: Otis elevator, Carrier heating and cooling equipment, Pratt & Whitney jet engines, aerospace components and security systems such as security cameras and fire sprinklers.
