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. With the acquisition, XFS leased 34,000 square feet in an industrial building on Douglas Way with plans to create employment opportunities in the community.
Jacob Furbee, president and CEO of XFS Global LLC, announced the hiring of five new employees, with more job openings on the horizon. The business produces tents designed for military and commercial applications in various sizes capable of housing a plane or command post. The shelters come equipped with HVAC systems, insulation, floors, and lights with installation services available if needed.
XFS is currently working on fulfilling orders for a Texas customer and a defense subcontractor. Furbee, who served as a Marine Corps veteran, brings his military experience to his role as CEO. He is joined by Paul Wilcox, also a veteran of the Marines, serving as vice president. Plans are underway for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate XFS’s grand opening on December 6th following its formation in September and asset purchase in October.
