"The people of the Triad are excited about this development, and our workers are eager to take on these good-paying jobs," said Representative Kathy Manning.
Marshall USA says it will bring 240 new jobs and $50 million to the Triad. They will be servicing Hercules C-130 tactical transport aircraft.
"We are one of only two Lockheed Martin approved C130J heavy maintenance centers in the world," said Ken Loy, President of Marshall USA.
Loy points out where the new over 100,000 square-foot maintenance and engineering facility will sit, it can be seen from the PTI airport.
“We're recruiting nationwide as well as of course hiring from the local population and we will need mechanics we need parts and supply personnel we need accounts and we need finance and HR, engineers,” said Loy.
Initial construction will include a hangar that has seven bays for seven aircraft, allowing them to be repaired, maintained, painted, and even overhauled.
"We're currently providing that for the US Marine Corps and also working with the US Air Force and the US Navy to provide similar capabilities for them.
The company says one reason it chose the PTI Airport is because of how supportive they are of industry. Their construction site sits right next to another aviation company's construction site, Boom Supersonic.
"You have spoken with one voice to support the establishment of our facility in Greensboro, providing incentives, guidance, advocacy, and, more importantly, relationships," said Neil McManus, Managing Director of Marshall Aerospace.
The company plans to start servicing aircraft by 2025.
