  • Overview

    Triumph Group designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs, and overhauls a broad portfolio of aviation and industrial components, accessories, subassemblies, systems and aircraft structures. We partner with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and operators of commercial, regional, business and military aircraft worldwide, to provide products and services that solve their hardest problems. So whatever the part, component or complexity of assembly, Triumph is committed to quality, service and meeting the specialized needs of each customer.


    Based in West Hartford, CT, Triumph’s Electronics and Control division employs approximately 530 personnel. Triumph is a leading independent aerospace fuel system supplier for the commercial, military, helicopter, and business jet markets. The Company works closely with both jet and gas turbine engine manufacturers to supply critical components for their engines. Key products include electronic engine controls, fuel metering units, main fuel pumps, permanent magnet actuators and actuation systems for both the OE and aftermarket/spares end markets.


    The West Hartford facility provides product development and qualification, manufacturing of precision components, assembly and test of products, and maintenance, repair and overhaul of fielded products. An active IR&D department identifies and implements development programs for the newest technologies applicable to customer needs and works closely with local colleges to evaluate the technologies.



    Triumph is actively recruiting a summer 2019 Hydromechanical Engineering Intern to support a range of technical responsibilities in the Design and Development Group for Triumph’s new and fielded hydromechanical products: fuel pumps, fuel control units, actuators, permanent magnet alternators, and multiple subcomponents. The internship will provide a college-level student with practical experience related to his or her major that will enhance and complement classroom learning. In addition, at the West Hartford facility, the student will gain exposure to all the aspects of the full product life cycle of highly engineered aerospace components.
