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. XFS has leased 34,000 square feet in an industrial building on Douglas Way, with plans to create employment opportunities in the community.
Jacob Furbee, president and CEO of XFS Global LLC, is excited about the opportunity to bring his experience as a Marine Corps veteran to his new role. He has announced the hiring of five new employees, with more job openings on the horizon. 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.
XFS is currently working on fulfilling orders for a Texas customer and a defense subcontractor. With their military backgrounds, Furbee and Vice President Paul Wilcox are well-equipped to handle any challenges that may arise in their new venture. Planned for December 6th is a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the company’s opening, following the formation of XFS in September and the asset purchase in October.
