Georgia aviation firm creates joint venture with Japanese company

International Component Repair (ICR), an airframe and engine component repair company located in Villa Rica and  IHI Corporation from Japan have announced plans to form a joint venture.  The partnership will create the first Japanese affiliated aerospace production facility in the United States.  It will bring 25 new jobs and an estimated economic impact of $10 million to the area.  The Georgia Economic Development Commission has been working to make Georgia a competitive location for companies in the aerospace industry so this is definitely a step in the right direction.  Hopefully it will lead to more growth of the industry in Georgia.
