German engineering company Siemens and Florida-based Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corp. are bringing 350 new jobs to Hillsborough County, Gov. Rick Scott announced Thursday. The positions will be at a manufacturing facility for Advanced Airfoil Components, a new company the two firms started.
"This is a strong market for technical candidates, and we are looking forward to identifying highly skilled individuals to support this new, innovative energy business," said Carlo Luzzatto, Chromalloy president, in a release.
Chromalloy is based in Palm Beach Gardens, while Siemens' domestic headquarters are in Washington, D.C.
The facility will be located in the Tampa Regional Industrial Park, where Advanced Airfoil will lease 210,000 square feet of space. According to the release, it is expected to open toward the end of 2018.
The project garnered $2.8 million in incentives from Hillsborough County and the State of Florida.
Siemens has 5,200 employees in Florida.
