Rolls Royce's investment and expansion at Crosspointe is a great model for job growth in Virginia. By combining a mix of manufacturing and technology-based research facilities, secondary suppliers will follow to create more employment opportunities.
The construction of the second plant achieves two-thirds of its phased employment and investment agreement at Crosspointe, which runs through 2022. Rolls Royce invested $170 million, opening its Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing earlier this year, which created 130 new jobs.
