ST Aerospace decision close

PENSACOLA, Fla. – A decision on Singapore-based ST Aerospace's proposed expansion is nearing. A Pensacola News Journal columnist wrote that should Pensacola land the expansion it would mean hundreds of aerospace jobs at a planned aerospace industrial park at Pensacola International Airport. Mayor Ashton Hayward told the board that the Florida Department of Transportation offered $14 million for property acquisition at the airport land the company, which provides maintenance services. Hayward said he spoke with a top ST executive recently at the company's Mobile, Ala., headquarters and was told word should come through in the next week or two.
