In October, XFS Global LLC, a service-disabled veteran-owned business that specializes in fabric shelters, announced the purchase of the assets of Creative Tent International and the move of its manufacturing infrastructure from Las Vegas to Natural Bridge Station. The company has now leased 34,000 square feet in an industrial building on Douglas Way in Rockbridge County, with plans to create employment opportunities in the community.
As part of its expansion efforts, XFS Global LLC has recently hired five new employees and has more job openings planned for the future. The company 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.
Currently working on fulfilling orders for a Texas customer and a defense subcontractor, XFS Global LLC is bringing its military experience to the table. Jacob Furbee serves as president and CEO of the company, having previously served as a Marine Corps veteran. Paul Wilcox, also a veteran of the Marines, is 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.
