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.
The company has leased 34,000 square feet in an industrial building on Douglas Way, with plans to create employment opportunities in the community. 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.
Five new employees have been hired by Jacob Furbee, president and CEO of XFS Global LLC. More job openings are expected to come as the business continues to grow. Furbee brings his military experience to his role as a Marine Corps veteran, along with Paul Wilcox, also a veteran of the Marines who serves as vice president.
XFS is currently working on fulfilling orders for a Texas customer and a defense subcontractor. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for December 6th to celebrate the company’s opening following the formation of XFS in September and the asset purchase in October.
