Cobham opens manufacturing facility in Suffolk
- May 3, 2010
Cobham opened a high-production, “green” facility in Suffolk on Monday.
The 73,500-square-foot facility, which will manufacture composite products for the aerospace and defense industries, is expected to employ 200 people during the first five years of operation, with salaries averaging $41,000
The plant will focus on advanced aircraft engine aircraft components, aircraft and rotorcraft structural products, unmanned aerial vehicle components, and missile and munitions products.
It was built to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Enrivonmental Design) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
Cobham is located in the United Kingdom. The Suffolk plant is part of its Defense Systems Division. Several politicians were on hand for Monday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour, including Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling.
