Scottsdale, Ariz.-based TPI Composites, a supplier of wind turbine blades, held a grand opening ceremony of its 316,000 square-foot Newton, Iowa, production facility. The newly built plant will manufacture high-performance wind turbine blades for distribution to the U.S. wind energy market.

At full capacity, TPI Iowa plans to employ 500 associates, making it a significant provider of green jobs.

"Wind energy has been embraced in Iowa, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this movement," says Steve Lockard, CEO of TPI Composites. "Newton has provided us with a wealth of qualified employee candidates and is ideally located for delivery of blades to the nation's wind belt."

The Iowa plant joins TPI's other production facilities in Warren, R.I.; Springfield, Ohio; Juarez, Mexico; and Taicang, China.
