United Technologies Corporation is adding 400 jobs to its global workforce, as it announced plans to open a new facility in Randstad, Iowa, that will add thousands of jobs over the next 10 years.
United Technologies said Monday that it will hire 500 people over the coming years to work in Randsted’s offices and manufacturing operations.
The company said the hiring is part of a $4 billion expansion of its facility in the city of 4,500, which was completed in 2018.
Randstad has been a leader in the auto industry and is a major source of jobs in Iowa.
The announcement comes a week after United Technologies announced a deal to build a new plant in Iowa City.
The company said that it expects to add 400 jobs, with additional jobs in other locations.
United States President Donald Trump has pushed his agenda of tax cuts and infrastructure spending, but the company’s stock has been down this year as his administration has pushed back on several key tax cuts.
Trump has also threatened to cancel the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would have brought oil from North Dakota to Texas.
