United Technologies will establish Charlotte as its divisional headquarters for a business unit called UTC Aerospace Systems after it completes its acquisition of Charlotte-based Goodrich Corp. United Technologies will receive as much as $19 million in state incentives and plans to invest $4 million and create 325 jobs over five years.

Those 325 jobs might replace the many people that have left Goodrich since the merger was announced. As for the 'average compensation' - the CEO and VPs are in the same office, so that skews the salary range tremendously.

The city and county put up $2.5 million in incentives, and the state another $2.5 million.

Love to see companies that offer higher salaries jobs!

This means Charlotte will attract even more companies requiring educated and well paid people in the future, hence the overall standard of living in Charlotte area will improve.
