By Editors of Power Engineering

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 employ 350 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.

The new joint venture will focus on turbine blade and vane cast components for power generation. The two companies will lease 210,000 square feet at Tampa Regional Industrial Park and will open in late 2018.
