Williams International announces new jet engine facility at airport
Williams International, a global leader in the development and manufacture of small gas turbine engines, will build a new $268 million facility on 50 acres at Jetplex Industrial Park at Huntsville International Airport.
The first phase of the multi-year, ongoing project will result in an initial investment of $14 million, the construction of a 120,000 square foot manufacturing facility and the creation of 81 jobs by 2004. Williams International plans to invest a total of $268 million to create more than 700 new jobs by 2009.
Williams International is a premiere aerospace engine manufacturer. The company's Huntsville facility will serve as a maintenance, repair and overhaul center for general aviation aircraft. Employees will manufacture parts and components for small gas turbine engines, resulting in a new generation of lighter, lower-cost jet airplanes that will be faster, quieter, more comfortable and have a longer range than current jet aircraft.
