Success Stories

Aveo Engineering

Aveo wanted to be near an airport because of its involvement with manufacturing aircraft lights and to have an air side location where it could have a hangar for development work to physically modify the aircraft for FAA approval.

Before settling on Flagler County as its U.S. manufacturing base, Aveo Engineering checked out mid-sized city airports nationwide. Once an approval was reached, the company announced it would invest $7 million in an airport hangar and manufacturing plant in the County, creating 300 jobs within the next three years. The jobs would mostly be focused in engineering and pay an average wage of $40,000.
