COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Wilmington will keep more than 400 jobs at a newly formed aircraft-maintenance unit that was awarded a tax credit valued at $3.9 million by the Ohio Department of Development.
Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services Inc. will receive a 65 percent, 10-year tax credit for the $5.7 million project, which is expected to create 430 positions in Wilmington, where thousands of jobs have been lost as DHL has pulled shipping operations there.
Many positions likely will be filled by employees of parent company Air Transport Services Group, which includes ABX Air and Air Transport International, both of which provide services to DHL and have operations and aircraft in Wilmington.
