120 New Jobs Coming to Forsyth County
This week Piedmont Aviation Component Services LLC, a provider of aircraft maintenance services and sales, announced plans to expand its operations in Kernersville. The company plans to invest $5.8 million and create 120 jobs this year by relocating sister company Limco from Oklahoma to North Carolina. The announcement was made possible in part by a $44,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.
Piedmont Aviation Component Servicesâ€™ roots stem from the 1940 creation of Piedmont Aviation in Winston-Salem, from which emerged Piedmont Airlines. North Carolina has a growing aerospace sector, and Governor Perdue is excited to work with a homegrown company like Piedmont.
