German multinational Siemens and US company Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corp. have announced that they will be offering 350 new jobs at a facility located in Hillsborough county, Florida.
The positions will be offered at the manufacturing facility for Advanced Airfoil Components, a company that was formed between the two firms in a joint venture.
“I’m proud to announce that Siemens and Chromalloy chose Florida as the best place to start their new joint venture that will create 350 new jobs for families in the Tampa area,” said Florida’s Governor Rick Scott.
Advanced Airfoil Components produces turbine blades and vane cast components for use in power generation such as wind turbines.
“Siemens is very pleased to make additional investments in the I-4 corridor, where we already have more than 5,000 employees. We’re a global company that is proud to be ‘U.S. local,’ with over 60 manufacturing sites across the country. This joint venture with Chromalloy streamlines our supply chain and ensures we have the most advanced technologies as we pursue performance gains for our gas turbines,” said Siemens US CEO, Judy Marks.
“With two existing manufacturing facilities in the Tampa area, Chromalloy is excited to continue our investment in the community and to support technical and professional job growth in Florida. This is a strong market for technical candidates, and we are looking forward to identifying highly skilled individuals to support this new, innovative energy business,” said Carlo Luzzatto, President of Chromalloy.
