$ 32 million deal convinces Piper to stay in U.S.

Piper Aircraft Inc. plans to add 454 jobs and invest in new technology as part of an agreement that keeps its headquarters in Florida, the third aircraft-manufacturing company to announce U.S. expansion plans this month.

Piper, which makes small propeller-driven planes for personal and business use, will receive a $ 32 million incentive package from the state for agreeing to expand in Vero Beach, Florida Governor Charlie Crist said in an e-mailed statement today. The planned new jobs are in addition to 963 existing ones.

Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica SA, the world´s fourth-largest aircraft maker, said May 13 it will invest $ 50 million in a new plant to make jets in Melbourne, Florida. Spirit AeroSystems Inc. said the following day it would open a plant in North Carolina to perform some of the work needed for a $ 2.7 billion contract from Airbus SAS to design and build a fuselage section for the A350 XWB jetliner.
