EIT Moving to New Facility in Leesburg, Virginia
STERLING, Va.—EIT, LLC, a Sterling, Va.-based provider of electronics manufacturing services (EMS), announced in August that it would be relocating its Northern Virginia (NOVA) operations to the Oaklawn section of Leesburg, Virginia. The company said in a release that it will custom-build a new 70,000 square foot manufacturing and operations facility that was expected to be ready for occupancy as D2P went to press.
David Faliskie, president of EIT, summarized the relocation as “a wonderful opportunity for EIT,” adding that the move will allow the company’s team in NOVA to “efficiently and cost effectively work from one facility in Leesburg.”
“We have worked closely with Oaklawn Development Partners and the Town of Leesburg to make this possible, and we are very excited to be able to merge our operations and headquarters into this new Leesburg facility,” he stated in the release. “Easy access to Leesburg Executive Airport and local transportation infrastructure make the site a very attractive and pleasant location for both our employees and customers. EIT headquarters and manufacturing will remain in NOVA. We will continue to operate our facilities in Danville, Va., and Salem, N.H., and with their support and manufacturing capacity, we expect the move to Leesburg to be smooth for our customers.”
Leesburg Mayor Kristen Umstattd said in the release that she is “thrilled about EIT’s decision to make Leesburg their home. “Our Economic Development staff has been paving the way for this move, and I foresee a very bright future for both EIT and the Town,” she added.
