Governor Rick Scott today attended the grand opening of National Air Cargo Holdings, Inc. a global cargo logistics provider, and its subsidiary, National Airlines’ new headquarters and airlines offices. Earlier this year, Governor Scott announced the relocation of these offices to Orlando from Michigan, bringing 105 new jobs and a capital investment of $875,000 to the Orlando community.
Governor Scott said, “In two and a half years we have created more than 365,000 private-sector jobs, we have cut taxes 24 times, paid down $3.5 million in state debt and eliminated 2,800 regulations for job creators. In addition to this, we are proposing to cut $500 million in taxes and fees for Florida families in the upcoming budget. It’s working in Florida.”
Glen Joerger, President of National Airlines said, “We here at National are very pleased and proud to be making Orlando our home for many years to come. Governor Scott, Mayor Dyer and their teams have made our transition very easy. It’s clear that Florida, Orlando and the entire Central Florida community is a tremendous area for future business growth and development. We look forward to be a member of the great state of Florida and city of Orlando.”
