Jun 20, 2006 — State and local leaders say a deal unveiled yesterday in Plattsburgh could transform the region's economy. Laurentian Aerospace, a newly-formed company based in Montreal, will build a $64-million facility at the old Plattsburgh Air Force base. The firm will refurbish wide-body civilian and military jets. As Brian Mann reports, Laurentian executives say their company could attract 1500 high-paying jobs to Clinton County in the next three years.
