Aircraft part maker to bring 100 jobs to Andrews

ANDREWS, S.C. (AP) - A company that makes parts for airplanes is moving its manufacturing plant to Georgetown County.

Davis Aircraft Products said Monday it expects to hire 100 people to work in the new $5.5 million plant when it opens next spring in Andrews.

The company will make tubing for airplanes at the new plant.

Davis Aircraft Products CEO Bruce Davis says he appreciated the support he got from state and local officials as he decided where to put his new manufacturing plant.

The Commerce Department says the state paid a $300,000 grant to improve the building the company will use.
