Roush, a product development supplier based in Livonia, Mich., will expand in Orlando, Fla., with the opening of a second facility to support the fabrication, assembly and testing of products for the themed attraction industry.
The new facility, expected to be up and running by the fourth quarter of 2022, will be more than 40,000 square feet and will bring new jobs to the area.
Since 2007, Roush’s entertainment systems group has engineered, designed, and manufactured ride seat systems, show action equipment, animatronic figures, animated props, and service parts for the world’s most popular theme park attractions. Roush opened its Orlando Technical Center in 2018 to house its design, engineering, and project management teams.
“Our existing Roush Orlando Technical Center has proved to be a tremendous success providing engineering services for our local customers,” says Michael Deneau, vice president of Roush’s entertainment systems group.
“The investment in this new facility signals Roush’s commitment to the company’s long-term growth and diversification strategies by expanding our presence in Orlando, enhancing our ability to serve our customers quickly and efficiently, and strengthening our position in this key market.”
