Airbus Americas is expanding its Ashburn facility to include the company’s newly consolidated Satair Group operations. The $1 million investment will make the facility Airbus’s largest material distribution center in the world by customer volume.
The announcement was made today by Loudoun’s Department of Economic Development.
Executive Director Buddy Rizer said the expansion “speaks to Loudoun County and Dulles Airport as hubs for aviation and logistics support.”
The final agreement with Airbus is pending a vote at the Board of Supervisors.
On May 3, the Department of Economic Development will request a $200,000 incentive from the board in the form of fee waivers and cash. The department expects the county to recoup its investment within three years.
The Ashburn material distribution center offers 24-hour, rapid-response services to provide critical parts and support the needs of airlines around the world.
“Loudoun County is a wonderful place to do business, particularly for those who utilize the great access provided by Washington Dulles International Airport,” County Chairwoman Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large) stated. “We continue to invest in the infrastructure necessary to support these businesses and their employees.”
