WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) - A new hangar facility is expected to create more than 250 jobs at the southwest Ohio airport where nearly 8,000 jobs were lost during the recession. Local officials and an aircraft leasing and cargo transportation company say construction of the $15.5 million hangar at the Wilmington Air Park begins next month and should take roughly a year.
The hangar will be owned by the Clinton County Port Authority and used by Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services Inc.
They say the project is funded with a state financing package of $14 million and financial incentives or grants from the port authority and other local entities.
It's a boost for the city that lost thousands of jobs when DHL Express moved its package delivery operations from the air park.
