Washington DC, USA December 16th, 2021- UVision Air Ltd., a global leader in aerial loitering munition systems, continues to expand its operations in the US by establishing a production and training facility in Stafford County, Virginia. The company will lease 25,000 square feet of space at the Quantico Corporate Center, where it will fulfill contracts awarded by the US Government and international customers for the manufacture and assembly of loitering munitions. Production of the HERO series of Loitering Munitions will begin at the new production facility in mid-2022.
UVision USA Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UVision Air Ltd., is playing an integral role in UVision’s ongoing global expansion of operations. By increasing its local production capability within the United States, UVision USA will be able to further improve its high-level, rapid response to US customers and increase supply to international customers – either directly or through government-to-government initiatives – while creating dozens of local job opportunities.
“We are very excited that our new Production and Training Center will be located in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” says Jim Truxel, Chief Executive Officer of UVision USA Corporation. “It is another step in the expansion of UVision USA support and deepening of the commitment to our customers in the US. Situated within a short commuter drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Manassas and Arlington, Stafford County gives us access to a large pool of quality talent, aligning with our strategic growth goals. UVision USA will be active in the local community, and we plan to network with the Commonwealth’s academic institutions and local businesses that can supply services and materials for the production of the HERO family of loitering munitions.”
