Gov. Scott touts project to bring 230 manufacturing jobs to Palm Beach County

Gov. Rick Scott was in West Palm Beach on Thursday to announce an economic development deal slated to bring 230 jobs to the area within nine years.

Under the deal, Pratt & Whitney, an aircraft builder and manufacturer and a business unit of United Technologies Corp., will invest $63.7 million in facilities renovations and employee training in Palm Beach County. It is expected to create 230 jobs over nine years – 157 of them within five years – at an average wage of $81,000 per year. If the company meets those job and wage goals, it will receive $4.7 million in state and local incentives.
