Aircraft bearing and components manufacturer Kaman Aerospace Corporation announced a $5 million investment in Chihuahua City, where it will employ 200 workers in a new plant to be completed this fall.
Kaman will manufacture structural components and do metal component detailing.
Robert Kanaskie, the company's president, said Kaman felt drawn by Chihuahua City's infrastructure, workforce skills and the city and state governments' support.
The company valued as well Chihuahua's manufacturing base, its industrial sector experience and support from American Industries, a Chihuahuan company providing industrial real estate solutions.
The city government is offering a 100 percent property tax discount and up to 55 percent discounts on construction permits for aerospace companies wanting to set operations here.
For Kaman's investment, Chihuahua City competed with other leading Mexican cities as Monterrey, Mexicali and Queretaro
