Development of new manufacturing facilities

MAPA conceived and executed one of the first incoming overseas green economy investments resulting in a major U.S. wind energy manufacturing operation that was also the first to start building in the U.S.; first to sign and embrace an award-winning, progressive relationship with organized Labor (the United Steelworkers Union); first to transform an abandoned brownfield industrial site into a green energy manufacturing hub; first to achieve upwards of 65% USA domestic content; and the first to sign a R&D partnership with a major U.S. defense aerospace & shipbuilding prime contractor to develop and build the next generation off-shore wind turbines ‘made in the USA’. This company with overseas origins has been characterized by the U.S. media as a “model U.S. green economy company” and since 2005 has invested over $220 million in two factories, and has created 900 in-state direct good and green jobs, plus hundreds of indirect jobs with local contractors.
