Blue Origin has inaugurated a new factory in Huntsville, Ala., that will work to accommodate high-rate production efforts for two rocket engines.

The company said Monday it has invested more than $200M and is set to provide over 300 job openings for the facility, which will manufacture BE-3U and BE-4 engines.

Bob Smith, CEO at Blue Origin, noted the firm has moved to back the development of reusable rocket engine systems.

The BE-7 lunar landing engine is currently being assessed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, where the BE-3U and BE-4 engines are also slated to undergo testing.
