TPI Composites to Build Fall River, Massachusetts Wind Turbine Facility

TPI Composites is creating 30 jobs in Fall River, Massachusetts, the Herald News reports. The wind turbine maker, which already has a plant in Warren, Rhode Island, will use the new center as a "development hub" for future global manufacturing centers, the company said in a press release.

"The potential benefit for Fall River is we've attracted a global leader in wind blades and wind turbines," said Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan. "As the demand for the products increases, hopefully we'll see a direct impact of job creation in the city."

The project will be officially announced at a press conference scheduled for tomorrow. Details on federal and state tax incentives are expected to be mentioned, as the project could support the Cape Wind off-shore wind farm proposal.

The Fall River site will support TPI facilities in Taicang, China; Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; Newton, Iowa; and Warren.
