Aerospace Projects Create Jobs in Louisiana

Two expansions at aerospace companies will bring approximately 130 new jobs and retain more than 500 jobs at the Chennault International Airport in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Louisiana governor's office reports that defense contractor Northrup Grumman Technical Services Inc. will construct a 20,000-square-foot assembly plant at the airport. This project will create 80 new jobs at an average annual salary of $51,000 plus benefits and retain 217 existing jobs. At the same time, Aeroframe Services LLC, an aircraft maintenance and repair contractor, will install a new tall dock that will increase its repair capacity. The company expects to create at least 50 new jobs at a minimum annual salary of $50,000 plus benefits and retain more than 300 existing jobs. State incentives include $1.2 million to Northrup Grumman and $375,000 to Aeroframe. In addition, Chennault Airport will match the state's investments.
