US: Framatome Celebrates Grand Opening of Nuclear Parts Center at Expanded Solutions Complex

Framatome today celebrated the grand opening of its Nuclear Parts Center (NPC) at the expanded Solutions Complex in Campbell County, Virginia. The NPC provides the nuclear energy industry with 24/7, year-round access to an extensive spare parts inventory, guaranteed stocking programs, supply chain management and technical support.

Over the past year, Framatome expanded its Solutions Complex on Mount Athos Road to house the NPC, which was previously located on Old Forest Road in Lynchburg, Virginia, behind the corporate headquarters building. Framatome relocated approximately 35 employees and nearly 27,000 products as part of the move.

Framatome will sell the building and the land associated with the prior location of the NPC on Old Forest Road. The North American headquarters offices at Old Forest Road will continue to house corporate functions as well as engineers supporting the full range of the company’s activities.

“Centralizing the Nuclear Parts Center at Framatome’s Solutions Complex at Mount Athos Road allows us to make the best use of our existing space and the resources necessary to support the facilities and operations,” said Gary Mignogna, president and CEO of Framatome in North America. “This move further demonstrates our commitment to the greater Lynchburg region, which has been home to our company for more than 50 years. It also makes available a facility that has the flexibility to suit any number of companies interested in relocating to or expanding within the region.”

The former NPC property sits on 9.13 acres. The nearly 47,000-square-foot main building consists of a warehouse, mezzanine and office space, while a second 5,000-square-foot warehouse is also on the property. With an overhead crane and ample ventilation, the main building is suitable for both warehousing and light fabrication work.
