It is with much pride and enthusiasm that I share with you the exciting news of Virgin Galactic opening a new facility in Pacific Pointe South at Douglas Park.
“Congratulations to Councilwoman Stacy Mungo on her efforts to bring Virgin Galactic to Long Beach,” said Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia. “Economic development successes like this will ensure a bright future for our City.”
The growth of Douglas Park alone in the last few years has brought some 3,000 jobs to the community, which will further be enhanced by the space company’s decision to locate in Long Beach for designing and manufacturing its small satellite launch vehicle, LauncherOne.
This innovative satellite project highlights and builds on the economic vitality, business friendly environment and local partnerships being created within the Fifth District, but most importantly on a citywide level.
On Saturday, March 7, 2015, Virgin Galactic will be hosting a job fair and open house at the new facility and prospective applicants are welcomed.
