PRINCE GEORGES COUNTY, VA-Rolls-Royce has begun construction on a $500-million new aerospace facility in the Crosspointe Industrial Park, located in Prince George’s County near the Route I-295 interchange at Route 460, and close to Fort Lee. This will be the first Greenfield Rolls-Royce manufacturing facility in the US. Located on over 1,000 acres, it is also the largest Rolls-Royce site in North America with enough space to accommodate suppliers’ and partners’ co-location in the future. Rolls-Royce plans to manufacture, assemble and test aerospace components and products in the facilities.

Phase one of the project is a $170-million build-out of a 140,000-square-foot disc manufacturing facility. The site is expected to become operational by early 2011, supporting 140 new jobs; the total number of jobs supported from the project will eventually reach 500. Plans are also proceeding for the second building on site, a blisk manufacturing facility, as well as accommodation for the Commonwealth Center of Advanced Manufacturing–a higher education partnership founded by the Commonwealth of Virginia, the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Rolls-Royce and other partners.

The Rolls Royce facility was another major win for the Commonwealth of Virginia, which has turned attracting marquee investment to the state into a fine art. Other recent deals here include Science Applications International Corp. plans to move its headquarters to Fairfax County from San Diego and Hilton Hotels headquarters move to Tysons Corner from Los Angeles.
