RALEIGH – The following are highlights from this week at the N.C. Department of Transportation. The stories below are also featured in
NCDOT Now, the department's weekly newscast.
Aircraft Solutions USA, Inc. Investing in NC
An aircraft recycling company is investing nearly $100 million and creating 475 jobs in Lenoir County.
Aircraft Solutions will establish a new branch at North Carolina’s Global TransPark to recycle aircraft parts and materials. The company serves commercial and military clients with aircrafts that are ready to be decommissioned. Despite an aircraft’s age, there are often many valuable parts that can be recycled, like engines, undercarriage equipment and in-flight entertainment systems.
Governor Roy Cooper says this addition will "add to the growing relevance of the Global TransPark."
