Dozens of jobs are coming to the area. Lieutenant Governor Beverly Perdue, along with officials from Craven County and the company Bell-Boeing, were on hand at the Craven County Industrial Park to announce the opening of a new V-22 logistics support facility. Perdue says the New Bern facility is the first step in the development of long-term support of Osprey aircraft in Eastern North Carolina. Military officials pointed out Eastern North Carolina is vital to the V-22 Osprey because of the Naval Air Depot at Cherry Point and the Marine Corps Air Station New River. Perdue estimates the new facility will bring about 80 new jobs.
