NIAGARA, N.Y. — A California-headquartered aircraft design firm has selected a former U.S. Army Reserve Center in Niagara County for its prototype development and production facility.
Stavatti Aerospace Ltd., based in San Bernardino, California, has pledged to invest nearly $26 million and create 590 jobs within the next five years.
The nearly 20-acre site along Porter Road in the Town of Niagara neighbors Niagara Falls International Airport and the Niagara Air Reserve station — two factors that helped the region land the facility over places such as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Dayton, Ohio; and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Sites in more than 30 states and three Canadian provinces were considered. You can read the full story on Buffalo Business First's website.
