Thales USA, which develops airline in-flight entertainment systems among other products, has announced the development of a 100,000-120,000-square-foot facility in Brevard County, FL, as well as future facilities expansions in Orlando. The company plans to invest more than $20 million in the next five years, leading to creation of 500 jobs throughout the Sunshine State.
The Thales Group, headquartered in Paris, already has offices in Orlando, South Florida and Melbourne, FL. Thales also also has affiliates in California and Virginia.
The new jobs will be focused on high-tech research development including software, programming, data and some hardware design. The state of Florida will provide Thales with incentives up to $2.5 million to assist the expansion.
