"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," Ind. Gov. Pence said. “Rolls-Royce narrowed in on the state of Indiana for this investment because we offer the business-friendly climate, workforce, and strategic university partnerships needed to remain competitive and to succeed in the aerospace and defense industry.”
Representative Jackie Walorski (IN-02) is also enthusiastic about Rolls-Royce’s investment in Indiana.
"Today's announcement is another example that Indiana's outstanding business climate and qualified workforce is well-equipped to help global businesses thrive in our state,” said Walorski. “Congratulations to Rolls Royce and best wishes on many more years of continued success operating in the Hoosier state."
This investment will be the largest the company has made in the U.S. since 1995.
