Rohr Hagerstown, Maryland
Rohr Industries, Inc.

On October 30, 1987, Rohr Industries announced the purchase of the Fairchild Composite/Bonding Center in Hagerstown, Maryland. The purchase included the buildings, machinery, and equipment on 60 acres. It became Rohr's third largest operation behind Chula Vista and Riverside (Rohr, 1988, page 41). 

Rohr's Hagerstown facility manufactured composite aerodynamic casings for aircraft engines and thrust reversers. It was comprised of 423,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space (Rohr, p. 51; New York Times, 22 July 1993).

United Auto Workers represented Rohr employees at the Maryland plant (Schena, 24 Sept 1990).

The Hagerstown plant worked on composite bonding and final assembly and employed 520 people (Rohr, 1990).

In 1993, preparing and mailing brochures and videos, three hundred of Rohr Hagerstown's employees were involved in the search to find a buyer for the plant as it was scheduled to close in 1994 due to a slum in sales (New York Times, 22 July 1993).

The Rohr plant in Hagerstown, Maryland was closed in the early 1990's to increase production in the company's other facilities (Rohr, p. 23).
