Rohr Moreno Valley, California
Final assembly for military programs.
Written and compiled by Sue Poole
In 1979, to accommodate its increased production, the Riverside plant expanded into Moreno Valley. The Moreno Valley facility consisted of offices, manufacturers, and warehouses on approximately 244,000 square feet and 37.5 acres (Goodrich, 2004; Rohr, p. 51).
Recently, on social media, I asked former employees where the Rohr Moreno Valley plant was located. One Rohr retiree responded that this plant was across Alessandro "from where Day street begins. On the top right of the building is where the Rohr logo was painted." Another employee remembers that "Alessandro just just past of old Hiwy395." The daughter of a Rohr retiree stated that "Before it was ROHR it was a Winnebago motorhome plant." Another employee stated that Rohr was located on "Alessandro Blvd right at the end of March Airbase runway, B52's took off right over the top of the buildings. almost as loud as a bunch of drop hammers" (October 22, 2021).
By July 1989, Rohr Moreno Valley was employing 236 people (Douglass, 1993, p. C1).
By 1990, Rohr Moreno Valley was working on the final assembly for commercial and military programs and employed 370 people (Rohr, 1990).
By August 1992, employment at Rohr Moreno Valley at decreased down to 219 people, and had decreased again by August 1993 to 191 employees predicting that "payroll may shrink amid cutbacks" (Douglass, 1993, p. C1).
