Rolls-Royce announced that the company is ready to invest over half a billion dollars in order to transform and upgrade their Indianapolis facilities. With the amount of funds to invest, the plant will be completely modernized.

Marion Blakey, the Rolls-Royce North America President and CEO, says,

“Our new facility will be a state-of-the-art manufacturing center that combines modern production systems and machinery with a highly skilled workforce. This investment ensures that we can increase our competitiveness in the market, which will benefit both our customers and Rolls-Royce.”

The Indiana governor welcomes Rolls-Royce’s new upgrade. Indiana Governor Mike Pence says,

“Indiana leads the nation in advanced manufacturing, and Rolls-Royce has been an integral part of our state’s industry for the past 100 years. As the company evaluates its future and looks to remain competitive across the globe, Rolls-Royce is choosing the State of Indiana for this investment because we offer the business-friendly climate needed to succeed. Today’s news is evidence that Indiana is a state that works for business, and it signifies the company’s commitment to our state and to Hoosiers for years to come.”

Rolls-Royce is happy with Indiana allowing them to upgrade the plant. Phil Burkholder, President and CEO of Rolls-Royce Defense Aerospace, North America says,

“We want to express our sincere appreciation to the State of Indiana, the City of Indianapolis, the UAW, and our employees for helping us make this investment in our future possible.”

Mayor Greg Ballard is also proud that Rolls-Royce has chosen his state to do business in:

“This is an internationally-renowned company that could have chosen to invest anywhere on the map, and I am very proud that they selected Indianapolis. I look forward to our community’s continued partnership with Rolls-Royce as they engage our talented workforce and use their upgraded facility to raise the bar in aerospace technology.”
