Governor scheduled to be at PU Airport tomorrow for "major jobs announcement"

Indiana governor Mike Pence will be at the Purdue Airport tomorrow for what is being characterized as a "major jobs announcement."

Our partners at Inside Indiana Business are reporting that GE Aviation will locate a jet aircraft engine operation in Lafayette.

It would be the company's first-ever production facility in Indiana. 

GE Aviation produces large and small jet engines for commercial and military aircraft, and avionics, electric power, and mechanical systems for aircraft.

The announcement is scheduled to take place tomorrow morning at 10:15  in Hangar 1.
