TPI Composites to Build Fall River, Massachusetts Wind Turbine Facility

08/24/2010
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.
