Firm Announces Investment To Expand Manufacturing Facility
September 16, 2019

Eagle Aviation Technologies, LLC, an industry leader in composites design and fabrication, has announced that the firm will invest $207,500 to add new production equipment and expand its manufacturing facility in the City of Newport News.

Founded in 2009, Eagle Aviation Technologies, LLC engages in the concept development, design, analysis, manufacture, and testing of prototype systems and components for the aviation, space, and marine industries. The new facility expansion is needed as the company is experiencing significant growth due to the expansion and diversification of its business client portfolio.

“We are excited to be part of the Newport News business community,” said Mia Copeland, Vice President of Contracts and Administration. “Eagle Aviation Technologies, LLC is proud to work with Governor Northam, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, and City of Newport News staff on this program. The Virginia Jobs Investment Program is a tool we can use to help grow our business and provide good-paying jobs to the local community. We are thankful these programs exist for growing small businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia.”

“Innovative companies like Eagle Aviation Technologies have an important role in propelling our 21st-century economy forward, which is why my administration has made it a priority to support businesses of every size and in all industries,” noted Governor Ralph S. Northam in response to the announcement. “The success of the company has reached new heights from its growing operation in the City of Newport News, and we are proud that the Virginia Jobs Investment Program will bolster the hiring and training efforts for 75 new jobs being created.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the City of Newport News to secure the project and will support Eagle Aviation Technologies’ job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP) which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change in order to support employee training activities.
