Aerospace Company Adding Jobs in Indiana

BAE Systems, a developer of defense, security and aerospace systems, will add approximately 200 full-time positions at its operation in Fort Wayne, Indiana, according to the Indiana governor's office. "The type of work moving to Fort Wayne will involve avionics on the Boeing 737 and 777 airplane programs," says company spokesperson Lisa Albiston, quoted in the Fort Wayne Daily News. "Our Fort Wayne facility manufactures flight controls, engine controls, and cables for both commercial and military avionics, and supports aftermarket repairs and spare equipment for customers." The jobs are being transfered to Indiana from a facility in Texas that will be closed. The governor's office says BAE Systems will begin hiring engineers and production operations employees in late March and will continue to hire over the next two years. The company has been offered up to $2.3 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $242,500 in training grants, contingent on job creation; the city will also provide property tax abatement.
