Local Entrepreneur Establishes Tent Business in Rockbridge County


Nov 21, 2023

XFS Global LLC, a newly opened service-disabled veteran-owned business, has recently relocated from Las Vegas to Natural Bridge Station in Rockbridge County. The company specializes in fabric shelters and has acquired the assets of Creative Tent International. XFS has leased 34,000 square feet in an industrial building on Douglas Way and plans to create employment opportunities for the community.

Jacob Furbee, president and CEO of XFS Global LLC, announced that the business will be hiring five new employees, with more job openings to come. The company produces tents designed for military and commercial applications in various sizes capable of housing a plane or a command post. These shelters are equipped with HVAC systems, insulation, floors, and lights, with installation services available if needed.

XFS is currently working on fulfilling orders for a Texas customer and a defense subcontractor. Furbee, who served as a Marine Corps veteran, brings his military experience to his role as CEO. Paul Wilcox, another Marine Corps veteran, serves as vice president of the company. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for December 6th to celebrate XFS’s grand opening following its formation in September and asset purchase in October.
