Our reputation precedes us.

And we don’t take our leadership role lightly. Every one of the technical professionals here at our Montgomery, Alabama headquarters is totally dedicated to instilling the best combination of capability, quality, reliability and value possible.

Whether it’s a brand new starter or a refurbished cabin heating system, our customers have come to expect the best from us. And delivering on that expectation is our highest priority.

It's what's inside that counts.

Others may make parts that look like ours, but that’s where the similarity ends. No one in the industry can match the levels of our engineering, the quality of our manufacturing or the skills and dedication of our technicians. Rest assured, before we put the name Hartzell on the label, we make sure it’s the best you can put in your aircraft.

Invested in Growth

Hartzell Engine Technologies’ commitment to customer satisfaction has cemented our role as frontrunners in providing technology critical to the aerospace industry. By observing and listening to customer needs, we endlessly work toward developing or acquiring improved products to meet aviation expectations of the 21st century.

These developments and acquisitions, such as our extremely lightweight, high output alternators or our Inconel heaters that withstand greater temperatures, allow HET to continue meeting ongoing market demands for more intelligent, reliable, lightweight components. We’ve made significant investments in precision machining, inspection and test equipment to produce these innovative products, so every part is 100% up to performance and design.
