Canadian Companies Creating About 110 Jobs To Fla.

TALLAHASSEE (CBS4) — Gov. Rick Scott has announced two Canadian companies will be creating about 110 new jobs in Florida.

Scott made the announcement Friday in Toronto at the end of a five-day Canadian trade mission.

The governor said Toronto Sky Aviation Inc., is building a 30,000 square foot aircraft repair facility in Opa-Locka.

It’s expected to employ about 100 people in South Florida.

Scott also said UCC Industries International Inc. will add about 10 jobs with an average wage of $44,000 at its U.S. headquarters in Tampa.

The only other jobs-related announcement during Scott’s trip was that Garda World Security Corp. is moving its U.S. headquarters and 100 jobs to Boca Raton.

Talks on that deal, though, began before Scott took office in January.
