The Rolls-Royce Crosspointe facility in Virginia is a center for the manufacture of precision-engineered engine components for some of the most advanced aircraft in the world. Located on 1,000 acres of land, 30 miles south of Richmond, it is the first Rolls-Royce manufacturing facility built from the ground up in the U.S.
The students were greeted by friendly security officers before receiving their visitor passes. The students were introduced to Ms. Linda Hogan, HR Director, their tour guides, viewed a safety video, and fitted with safety gear before beginning their tour of the facility.
Students learned that Rolls-Royce invest in their people, offering learning and development opportunities at every stage of their career, allowing them to own the moment, be brilliant and help pioneer the power that matters.
