Clearing the way

  • 29-Sep-2008 10:22 EDT

Development is under way at the new Rolls-Royce aerospace manufacturing facility located on 1000 acres of the Crosspointe Center property in Prince George County, VA. Clearing of the first 60-acre parcel began July 21. The facility is expected to be operational by the end of 2009, when workers will begin manufacturing, assembling, and testing a range of aerospace components and products. The first phase of work—component manufacturing—is likely to support more than 150 jobs. The company expects future growth in Virginia to generate roughly 500 new jobs in the coming years. Initial Rolls-Royce investment in the site exceeds $100 million. Over time, the company anticipates additional investment of up to $500 million in Virginia.
