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.
