Rolls-Royce to begin construction in Virginia

  • 03-Sep-2009 02:51 EDT

Rolls-Royce is set to begin construction at Crosspointe, its new aerospace facility in Prince George County, VA, in late September or early October. This first building at Crosspointe will be a 140,000-ft² disc manufacturing facility. Discs, the part of a turbofan engine that contains the blades, are considered one of the most critical components of the engine. Discs manufactured at Crosspointe will be used in the Trent 1000, Trent 900, and Trent XWB—optimized for the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A380 and A350 XWB, respectively. This initial phase of work will support roughly 140 jobs. Production will begin once the site is operational, currently expected in the fourth quarter of 2010.
