IMP announces jobs, contract, payroll rebate from province

AMHERST New jobs, new contract, and new payroll rebate things are flying high at IMP Aerospaces Amherst plant.

Nearly 325 new jobs could be created here in the next five years at IMP Aerospace following announcements Thursday of a new contract with Cessna and a deal with the province for a $3 million payroll rebate.

We have secured several long-term contracts over the last two years and already created more than 100 new jobs, David Pearson, vice-president of IMP Aerospace Components told employees and dignitaries gathered at the Amherst Industrial Park site this morning. With the addition of Cessna to our customer list, I am very confident the organizations future has never looked so good.

The new contract could mean the Amherst plants workforce could almost double to about 600.

Nova Scotia Premier Rodney MacDonald said the provinces $3,082,380 payroll rebate will be implemented over the next five years.

This expansion is a terrific win for IMP Aerospace components here in Amherst, MacDonald said. You have successfully forged a contract partnership with the worlds leading manufacturer of private and business aircraft.

Nova Scotias aerospace industry employs more than 6,000 people and generates about $600 million in revenues.
