Swiss aircraft company SR Technics announced plans Wednesday to locate its North American maintenance facility in Palmdale, a move that officials say could create 6,000 new jobs over the next five years. The facility would be the largest single addition to California's industrial base in at least 10 years, based on the number of new jobs, state officials said. "This is a huge deal that greatly benefits the Antelope Valley," said Gov. Gray Davis.

The results so far are impressive.
