XFS Global LLC, a service-disabled veteran-owned business that specializes in fabric shelters, has recently opened its doors in Rockbridge County. The company purchased the assets of Creative Tent International and moved its manufacturing infrastructure from Las Vegas to Natural Bridge Station.
XFS has leased 34,000 square feet in an industrial building on Douglas Way, with plans to create employment opportunities in the community. The company’s president and CEO, Jacob Furbee, has announced the hiring of five new employees and more job openings to come.
The business produces tents designed for military and commercial applications, available in various sizes capable of housing a plane or a command post. The shelters are equipped with HVAC systems, insulation, floors, and lights and installation services are available if needed. Currently, XFS is working on fulfilling orders for a Texas customer and a defense subcontractor. Furbee brings his military experience to his role as CEO and Paul Wilcox serves as vice president.
The company plans to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on December 6th to celebrate its opening following the formation of XFS in September and the asset purchase in October.
