Editorial: Aerospace expansion nod to local workforce

Daily Journal

An aerospace company plans to expand its plant and nearly double its workforce in Greenwood.

L&E Engineering Co. wants to hire 40 more employees and make a $3.7 million investment in expanding its Greenwood facility, plant manager Jeff Derrer said. The company plans to pay an average wage of $21.43 for the new jobs, not including benefits.

The company’s plant is about 23,000 square feet and will expand to between 40,000 and 45,000 square feet. Engineers, quality engineers and supervisors all would be hired as part of the expansion.

The projected wage is higher than the county average and the $17.50 an hour that L&E Engineering pays its current employees, Johnson County Development Corp. President and Chief Executive Officer Cheryl Morphew said. The company employs 54 workers at its facility at 254 N. Graham Road, east of Interstate 65.
