Dec. 19, 2014 - The Canadian Press is reporting that Pratt & Whitney Canada is planning a $67-million upgrade over the next six years at its Nova Scotia manufacturing facility.

The Nova Scotia government said it will provide up to 20 per cent or $13.4 million of the costs of the project. A spokeswoman for the government added the subsidy will only be provided after the company makes its investment.

According to the Canadian Press, the investment will allow the aerospace firm to build components of its new PurePower PW800 engines and upgrade its engine blade manufacturing facility.

The plant employs about 350 full-time staff and puts about $25 million per year into the province’s economy.
