– Rep. Ryan Warner (R-Fayette/Westmoreland) today applauded news that Advanced Acoustic Concepts, LLC is expanding operations at its engineering and production facility in Lemont Furnace.
The expansion is expected to create 36 new, full-time jobs and retain 120 current jobs.
“This is great news for our community and just what we need as we look to recover from the devastating economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Warner said. “This is a great company and their decision to expand here is a testament to the great work ethic of the people here in Fayette County.”
The company is a leading provider of undersea warfare (USW) solutions for integrated USW systems, sensors, weapons and trainers, including the United States Navy.
