A manufacturer of high-accuracy instrumentation and software is planning to expand its Virginia presence, creating 40 jobs.
Gov. Bob McDonnell said Tuesday that Aeroprobe Corporation will invest $2.2 million initially and $3 million over five years to move its headquarters from Blacksburg to Christiansburg and locate a manufacturing operation there.
Aeroprobe will construct a 20,000-square-foot facility in Montgomery County. The facility will be expandable up to 40,000-square-feet. A few months ago, it announced the addition of a new high-speed wind tunnel to its satellite facility in Blacksburg.
The company’s products have been used by customers such as General Electric Co., Lockheed Martin Corp., Boeing Co., Volvo, Toyota Motor Corp., Honda Motor Co., and Dresser-Rand Group Inc.
