Path to be cleared for UPS/Pratt Whitney facility in Londonderry
During Wednesday night’s Londonderry Planning Board meeting, the board approved the initial phase of the new Prologis distribution center at 4 Pettengill Road.
Project engineer Chris Rice of TFMoran, who was at the meeting on behalf of Prologis, said the plan was to seek approval for the entire project next month.
John Trottier, assistant director of public works and engineering, said town staff recommended granting a requested waiver for site development.
He noted that neighboring property owners have been notified of the pending activity on the site.
Once open, the new distribution center will serve as a centralized distribution center for Pratt & Whitney parts, tools and other supplies, with UPS providing services such as parts receipt, storage, the building of manufacturing and assembly kits, inventory management and freight transportation. The project was revealed to the public earlier this spring. At that time Pratt & Whitney Senior Vice President of Engineering & Operations Danny DiPerna said the pending partnership would give his company the chance to focus on core operations while ramping up its PurePower engine line.
