Tabet Manufacturing Company, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of communications equipment and custom solutions for military and industrial customers, recently announced a $6.5 million investment to expand its operations in Norfolk.
“We are excited to make this investment and continue growing our operations in the Hampton Roads area,” said Jeff Jaycox, president of Tabet Manufacturing Company. “The area is strategically located to serve our customer base and has the necessary infrastructure for us to conduct business in a competitive manner.”
The company will construct a new manufacturing facility adjacent to the current facility, on Ballentine Boulevard, to increase production capacity. The expansion is expected to create 68 new jobs.
“Tabet Manufacturing Company is a longtime contributor to the Hampton Roads economy, producing vital communications equipment for our armed forces,” said Governor Ralph Northam in a statement. “The company’s Norfolk operation continues to thrive, supported by the region’s significant military presence and the ability to recruit and retain top talent. We are honored that Tabet has decided to reinvest in our Commonwealth, and we look forward to their continued success.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) will assist Tabet Manufacturing’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
