Advanced Airfoil Components Choose Hillsborough County for New Headquarters
06 Oct 2017
“today, Governor Rick Scott announced that Siemens and Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corporation have chosen Hillsborough County as the headquarters location for their new joint venture, Advanced Airfoil Components. The Advanced Airfoil Components manufacturing facility will lead to the creation of 350 new jobs with a capital investment of approximately $139 million. Siemens and Chromalloy evaluated multiple states before ultimately choosing Florida as the best destination for this new headquarters.”
350 new jobs is a tremendous number and could represent a sizable impact of the local Tampa Bay area economy, especially as these are higher level manufacturing and engineering positions. The office location will also likely require buildout and furnishings. “This facility will be leasing 210,000 square feet at Tampa Regional Industrial Park and is scheduled to open in late 2018.”
Engineering firms, construction firms, technology providers, office furniture companies and other related service providers will all play a role in helping the joint venture get up and running quickly.
Also from today’s release…
“Florida is one of the nation’s top 10 states for manufacturing. Home to over 19,000 companies that employ more than 331,000 people, Florida’s diverse manufacturing industry produces everything from aerospace products, batteries, food and beverages, communications equipment, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, boats, and more. In 2016, Governor Scott championed the permanent elimination of the sales tax on manufacturing machinery and equipment so Florida manufactures can invest more money in growing their businesses and creating new jobs.”
