From Robins Air Force Base stems 41,459 employees/retirees in Georgia with a total pay/salary of $995 million. There are employees and/or retirees in 79 of Georgia’s 159 counties. $490 million in contracts went to Georgia firms in 2016 and $264.9 million of that went to Houston County firms. While having such a significant impact on our community Robins was able to also win the prestigious 2016 Air Force Maintenance Effectiveness Award for top-performing maintenance depot in the United States Air Force.
