XFS Global LLC, a service-disabled veteran-owned business that specializes in fabric shelters, 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 has 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 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 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’s experience as a Marine Corps veteran is brought to his role at XFS Global LLC along with Paul Wilcox, also a veteran of the Marines serving as vice president. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for December 6th to celebrate the company’s opening following its formation in September and asset purchase in October.
