ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Two companies that are partnering to manufacture light-weight airplane engine blades are marking the opening of a large production facility in Rochester, N.H.

Safran Aerospace Composites and Albany Engineered Composites are officially opening the plant Monday at a ceremony attended by U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte, and U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter.

During construction, the companies have been collaborating with Great Bay Community College to develop training programs aimed at allowing newly hired workers to adapt existing skills for the plant’s advanced manufacturing operation.

The new manufacturing plant is expected to employ about 400 workers.
