Lips-Doran To Establish Chesapeake, Va., Plant
Lips-Doran Company, a subsidiary of Lips Propeller Works of Drunen, the Netherlands, will establish one of its U.S. manufacturing and service facilities in Chesapeake, Va.
Lips is one of the world's largest manufacturers of large monoblock propellers, controllable-pitch propellers and thrusters. The company operates 32 facilities around the world.
The Lips-Doran plant in Chesapeake will construct a new building on a five-acre tract in the Cavalier Industrial Park in Chesapeake.
The new plant will serve as a production and repair facility f o r mono-block propellers, cont r o l l a b l e - p i t ch p r o p e l l e r s and thrusters. C o m p a n y spokesman Jeff van Oekel indicated operations are expected to begin in mid-1980.
The company has operated a s i m i l a r f a c i l i t y in Mississippi since 1970. However, according to Mr. van Oekel, the intense concentration of shipbuilding activity along the East Coast of the United States, and in Virginia's Tidewater area particularly, persuaded the company to shift these operations. The company has been in operation in temporary facilities in the Tidewater area since 1977. Lips-Doran will continue to operate their propeller facilities in Oakland, Calif., and Portland, Ore.
