Rolls-Royce plans to build a second manufacturing plant in Prince George County, creating 140 new jobs.
The power systems company said today it will begin construction on a $136 million Advanced Airfoil Machining Facility at its 1,000-acre Crosspointe campus in Prince George.
The 90,000-square-foot plant, which would produce turbine blades and nozzle guide vanes for Rolls-Royce engines, will be located alongside its jet engine disc manufacturing facility, which opened in May 2011.
The Crosspointe campus also includes the recently opened 60,000-square-foot Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing, a collaborative research facility focused on advanced manufacturing research and technology. Its members include three Virginia universities and a growing number of manufacturers. more
