Roush, a global product development supplier, is expanding its Orlando presence with the opening of a second facility to support fabrication, assembly and testing of products for the themed attraction industry.
Since 2007, Roush’s Entertainment Systems group has engineered, designed and manufactured ride seat systems, show action equipment, animatronic figures, animated props as well as service parts for the world’s most popular theme park attractions. Roush opened its Orlando Technical Center in 2018 to house its design, engineering and project management teams.
The new over 40,000-square-foot facility represents a significant expansion of Roush’s Orlando footprint, with its Infinity Park location close to their major customers’ operations and area theme parks. The facility is expected to be fully operational in Q4 2022.
“Our existing Roush Orlando Technical Center has proved to be a tremendous success providing engineering services for our local customers,” said Michael Deneau, vice president of Roush’s Entertainment Systems group. “The investment in this new facility signals Roush’s commitment to the company’s long-term growth and diversification strategies by expanding our presence in Orlando, enhancing our ability to serve our customers quickly and efficiently, and strengthening our position in this key market.”
