Thrush Aircraft to bring 100 jobs to Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thrush Aircraft is creating 100 new jobs in the Albany-Dougherty County area.

"We see our job as being there to help our customers do their jobs better; success for one brings success for the other, and collaboration is necessary to make that happen.
