Aeroprobe Corp. is planning to open a facility at the Falling Branch Corporate Park in Christiansburg. The $3 million expansion is expected to create 40 new jobs.

The company manufactures high-accuracy instrumentation and software to capture air or other fluid-flow data for applications in the turbomachinery, unmanned air vehicle, automotive, and wind turbine markets. Aeroprobe Corp. is investing $2.2 million initially, and expects to invest $3 million over five years to move its headquarters from Blacksburg and locate the 20,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Christiansburg.

Aeroprobe Corp. customers include GE, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Honda, and Dresser-Rand. This year, Aeroprobe Corp. received a Phase 2 Enhancement contract from NASA to develop a hurricane probe.

The company also has facilities in the Blacksburg Industrial Park. Aeroprobe Corp. is the result of a merger last July between Aeroprobe Corp. and Schultz-Creehan Holdings Inc.

Funding for recruitment and training for Aeroprobe Corp.’s Christiansburg facility will be provided by the Virginia Department of Business Assistance’s Jobs Investment Program.
