New positions   Virginia successfully competed against Echternach, Luxembourg
The company manufactures advanced honeycomb composite materials used in aviation, space, industrial, and defense technology applications, and will expand the facility by 51,000 square feet and add new equipment to increase production of composite-based parts associated with the aerospace industry.

Virginia successfully competed against Echternach, Luxembourg for the project, which will create 58 new jobs.

Euro-Composites, a privately held company, established its worldwide headquarters in Echternach, Luxembourg in 1984. Its United States Corporation was established in Culpeper County, Virginia in 1988. Euro-Composites is a global player in the field of advanced composite products.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Culpeper County to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Terry McAuliffe approved a $150,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Culpeper County with the project.

The company will receive benefits from the Port of Virginia Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
