FLAGLER BEACH, Fla. -- Hundreds of new jobs are coming to Flagler County.

Governor Scott was in Palm Coast Tuesday for a ground breaking at the Flagler County Airport.

Aveo Engineering makes strobe lights and announced it has chosen Palm Coast for its new assembly plant.

The lights will go on airplanes.

The venture will create 300 jobs and is a seven-million dollar investment.

Flagler County's unemployment is more than 11 percent, according to one speaker at the ceremony today.

Educators and business leaders say Aveo's decision to move to Palm Coast is a huge asset for Flagler County.
