An architect's rendering of the new Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) facility in Prince George County, VA, is shown.

Chromalloy, an independent supplier of advanced repairs, coatings, and FAA-approved replacement parts for turbine airfoils and critical engine components, will partner with Rolls-Royce as an Organizing Industry Member on the development of the new Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM). The CCAM manufacturing research center will be developed at Crosspointe in Prince George County, VA, as a public/private partnership between Rolls-Royce, eight Organizing Industry Member companies, the University of Virginia, and Virginia Tech. The research center's charter is to bridge the gap between research performed in the university environment and industry product development. CCAM will accelerate the transition from development of technologies through proof of concept and application. The CCAM research center will be built on land adjacent to the new Rolls-Royce jet engine manufacturing facility under development.
