Ribbon Cutting at GTP

Fifty new jobs now and the potential for hundreds more in the future was the prediction made Wednesday at the ribbon cutting for the Workhorse Aviation Manufacturing facility at the Global Transpark in Kinston.

Workhorse was attracted to the GTP through a grant funded by the Golden Leaf Foundation. Officials say the announcement should have a big impact on the potential growth of this new industry.

The salary range for the new jobs is expected to be between $30,000 and $75,000 per year.
