A Parsippany, N.J.-based defense contractor will break ground on a national-class manufacturing and warehouse facility next Monday in Bethlehem, according to the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp.

Curtiss-Wright Corp. is a global engineering company that works in the defense, commercial aerospace, power generation, oil and gas and general industrial fields.

Developer J.G. Petrucci will lead the ceremony to showcase the planned 179,000-square-foot facility, where the company will establish operations and create at least 95 full-time jobs within three years. The facility will house Curtiss-Wright's engineered pump division, which presently is in Phillipsburg, N.J.

The company was founded 80 years ago by Glenn Curtiss, the father of naval aviation, and by the Wright brothers, renowned for history's first flight.

The facility will be in Lehigh Valley Industrial Park VII at 1185 Feather Way in Bethlehem.

"It's a quality firm with family-sustaining jobs," Kerry Wrobel, president of LVIP, said earlier to Lehigh Valley Business.
