“Growing up in Warner Robins, I learned early on what an important role Robins Air Force Base plays in our national defense,” said Senator Perdue, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “Robins’ success would not be possible without its outstanding workforce. Today’s jobs announcement of ‘1200 in 12’ is the result of many hard-fought efforts. The Air Force recognizes the value of depots, and now Robins has three new work assignments – the Global Hawk, JSTARS, and Navy C-130. With these new work assignments comes the need for more manpower, and through Direct Hire Authority, new team members will be brought on board faster. This investment in the Air Logistics Complex, combined with a new Advanced Battle Management System mission on the horizon, makes this an exciting time to be at Robins. Thank you to General Kubinec, the 21st Century Partnership, and the Warner Robins community for all of your hard work to make this happen.”

“It’s safe to say this has been the most consequential year for new workload at Robins in decades,” said Brigadier General John Kubinec. “What makes all this new work possible is the professionalism and patriotism of our world-class workforce. Without them and their commitment to our nation’s defense, there is no Air Power. But to continue to be successful as we grow this new workload, we also have to grow our workforce. That’s why we’re announcing the start of our campaign to hire 1,200 new employees in the Air Logistics Complex in the next 12 months. These 1,200 new employees are needed to meet our projected workload in the next fiscal year, and I believe this is only the beginning of the growth here at Robins. Thanks to the aggressive work of the U.S. Senate and House Armed Services Committees, we now have Direct Hire Authority, which allows us to hire these new employees much faster than in the past.”
