Defense contractor Curtiss-Wright plans to finish moving its Steam & Air Solutions manufacturing unit for the U.S. Navy to its new home in Summerville by the end of this month, according to a report by Jane’s Defense Industry.
Curtiss-Wright will build propulsion steam turbines, nuclear steam turbines and aftermarket steam parts for aircraft carriers at the $32 million, 144,000-square-foot building at Charleston Trade Center off Interstate 26.
Summerville’s proximity to the Port of Charleston will make it easier to ship large products built at the site, the defense contractor said.
Charlotte-based The Keith Corp. was the project’s developer. Frampton Construction of Charleston was the builder.
