The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Go Utah), the Northern Utah Economic Alliance (NUEA), and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) are pleased to announce that Apogee Worx, LLC plans to expand its operations in Utah, adding up to 100 new high-paying jobs in the next eight years. Capital expenditures associated with the project are $6.5 million.
“Utah’s aerospace industry is growing rapidly, and we’re excited that Apogee Worx will be adding to that growth,” said Dan Hemmert, Go Utah’s executive director. “This expansion will create jobs in engineering, software, manufacturing, and more, benefiting residents in northern Utah.”
Apogee Worx is an aerospace company based in Ogden, Utah. The company focuses on Department of Defense (DoD) aircraft systems integration with multiple current contracts upgrading USAF Ogden Air Logistics Center supported aircraft, such as the A-10C. Apogee Worx designs and manufactures components necessary to install new capabilities in DoD aircraft. Additionally, the company manufactures aircraft support equipment.
“After investigating options in other states, Apogee Worx is excited to be expanding in Northern Utah near the Ogden Hinckley Airport and Hill AFB. Utah provides clear benefits including access to a talented workforce and a deep aerospace industrial base,” said Steve Pollard, Apogee Worx’s co-owner and co-founder. “We appreciate the forward-leaning incentives provided by the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity that make this expansion possible.”
The Go Utah Board has approved a post-performance tax credit not to exceed $812,437. Each year that Apogee Worx meets the criteria in its contract with the state, it will qualify for a portion of the total tax credit.
“We are excited that Apogee Worx has chosen to grow their business here in Ogden. Their expansion will create high-quality jobs that support the national defense. Apogee Worx also makes an impact by contracting with other local businesses and providing internships for college students," said Mayor Mike Caldwell.
“Apogee Worx is a vital and active player in Utah’s aerospace and defense supply chain,” said Theresa A. Foxley, president and CEO of EDCUtah. “The expansion of their footprint in Northern Utah will continue to bring benefits to the region and the state.”
