Homegrown Virginia company Aeroprobe Corporation just announced plans to relocate its headquarters and add a manufacturing operation in the Town of Christiansburg in Montgomery County’s Falling Branch Corporate Park. The project is expected to bring a $3 million investment and 40 new jobs to the area.

Aeroprobe will remain in the New River Valley region, relocating its headquarters from Blacksburg to Christiansburg and establishing a manufacturing operation in order to accommodate increased demand for its products. The company grew by 76 percent in 2011 and expects to increase by 103 percent in 2012.

The new facility at Falling Branch Corporate Park will include 20,000 square feet of space with room to expand to 40,000 square feet.

Aeroprobe Corporation also operates a satellite facility in Blacksburg Industrial Park which houses the company's high-speed wind tunnel.

The company elected to remain in Virginia due to the Commonwealth’s strong manufacturing workforce and the high quality of life Montgomery County offers. With its close proximity to Virginia Tech, ranked one of the best universities for aerospace employee recruitment by Aviation Week & Space Technology, the company has easy access to a steady supply of engineers and high-tech employees. 

According to Aeroprobe CEO Nanci Hardwick, “We are delighted to live and work in one of the most beautiful places in the world. The availability of highly technical talent in a business friendly community made Montgomery County our first choice to house our international operations.”

A leading manufacturer of air data measurement equipment, Aeroprobe illustrates the diversity of Virginia’s aerospace industry. The company’s products have been used by Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Air Bus and NASA.
