Governor Pence to lead jobs mission to UK, open Hoosier booth at flight show

INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Mike Pence will lead a delegation of Hoosier business and community officials on a jobs and economic development mission to the United Kingdom (UK) next month, which will include attending the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA), one of the largest worldwide exhibitions dedicated to the aviation industry.

“Aerospace companies soar in Indiana. Around the world, the industry is catching wind that companies like GE Aviation, BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce are all choosing to locate their growth here,” said Pence. “Like our trips to Japan and Germany, our mission in the United Kingdom will be focused on sharing why Indiana’s business environment propels growth, lifts potential and engineers flight into the future of aerospace innovation. Indiana’s story is one of a state that works, and from its world-class workforce to its economical cost of doing business, I look forward to sharing our story across the Atlantic.”

The Governor will depart for the UK on July 12 and conclude the jobs mission on July 16. During the trip, he will attend the inauguration of the Indiana booth at FIA and meet with executives from some of the world’s most influential aviation and aerospace companies, including GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce, Alcoa, BAE Systems and Raytheon, highlighting the many advantages of doing business in Indiana. He will also make calls to executives from Tate & Lyle, BP and ArcelorMittal in London.

Pence will continue to build upon the state’s momentum in the aerospace industry and promote Indiana as a leader in the aviation industry at the airshow. Already this year, Indiana’s aviation community welcomed GE Aviation’s announcement that it will locate a new $100 million jet engine assembly facility in Lafayette, Alcoa’s new $100-million jet engine part manufacturing facility in La Porte, and BAE System’s groundbreaking on its new aviation electronics manufacturing center in Fort Wayne.
