Please join United Technologies Corporation’s (UTC) aerospace business units, the U.S. Small Business Administration, and U.S. Department of Commerce to learn more about becoming a small business supplier!

Small Business suppliers are an integral part of the UTC supply chain. At UTC, we rely on our small business suppliers for their cutting edge innovation, competitive advantage, cost savings and more. The hard work and dedication of our current small business supply base helps us make commercial and military air travel safe, reliable and comfortable.
