Incentive Grants Help UTC Fire And Security Preserve, Add Jobs In Manatee

Incentive grants from the state of Florida and the Manatee Board of County Commissioners will help United Technologies Corporation Fire and Security keep existing jobs and add new ones.

The plan is for UTC Fire and Security to preserve 227 jobs at GE Security that the company obtained earlier this year. The company is also planning on adding 23 new jobs.

This is being made possible by the approval of incentive grants provided by the state and Manatee County.

UTC Fire and Security could receive as much as $92,000 over five years. The company will receive the money as it adds and retains high-wage jobs.

These incentive grants are made possible because UTC Fire and Security's headquarters will be located in a facility in Lakewood Ranch in Manatee County.

UTC Fire and Security, part of United Technologies Corporation, supplies high technology products and services to building and aerospace businesses across the globe and has more than 1 million customers.

Manatee commissioners, the Manatee Economic Development Council and the state are continuing to work to bring growth and good jobs to the community.

Positions will be posted as they come available on UTC Fire and Security's career page.
