Rolls-Royce Breaks Ground For New Plant

PRINCE GEORGE, Va. (AP) -- Rolls-Royce is starting construction of a new aircraft-engine components plant in Prince George County.

Officials broke ground on the site Monday.

The start of construction comes nearly two years after Rolls-Royce announced that it would invest $100 million to build an aerospace manufacturing campus in Prince George. The British company's North American headquarters is in Reston.

Rolls-Royce says the Crosspointe campus also will house two research partnerships, the Commonwealth Center of Advanced Manufacturing and the Commonwealth Center for Aerospace Propulsion Systems.
