Siemens, Chromalloy choose Hillsborough County for Advanced Airfoil Components headquarters
February 12, 2018
In October 2017, Siemens and Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corporation announced their selection of the Tampa area for the headquarters of their new joint venture, Advanced Airfoil Components. The new company, which will create 350 jobs, was formed to manufacture and produce components that will maximize gas turbine performance. Siemens and Chromalloy are investing approximately $139 million in the project.
“Siemens is very pleased to make additional investments in the I-4 corridor, where we already have more than 5,000 employees,” said Siemens USA CEO Judy Marks. “We’re a global company that is proud to be ‘U.S. local,’ with over 60 manufacturing sites across the country. This joint venture with Chromalloy streamlines our supply chain and ensures we have the most advanced technologies as we pursue performance gains for our gas turbines.”
Advanced Airfoil Components will hire workers for a range of skilled positions, including technical engineers, manufacturing technicians and production workers. The company will lease 210,000 square feet at Tampa Regional Industrial Park and the facility is scheduled to open in late 2018.
“With two existing manufacturing facilities in the Tampa area, Chromalloy is excited to continue our investment in the community and to support technical and professional job growth in Florida,” said Chromalloy President Carlo Luzzatto. “This is a strong market for technical candidates, and we are looking forward to identifying highly skilled individuals to support this new, innovative energy business.”
