New Hampshire FDI Snapshot


"Thirty-five years ago, TURBOCAM International started in the basement of a small home in one of the smallest towns in New Hampshire. The company specialized in manufacturing aero and rocket engine hardware and machining software. Recognizing opportunities in India, an international location was established in 1989 in the beautiful state of Goa.  Today over 250 people work there, part of the TURBOCAM global work force of 900.

New Hampshire is more often associated with tourism because of its mountains and ocean shores, and clean air and water.  TURBOCAM is at home in this business-friendly state, just 90 minutes from the international airport in Boston.  Many colleges, universities and companies integrating advanced technologies,  contribute to a high performing work force, connected to the world but separated from the crowded cities.

When TURBOCAM needed manufacturing space in 1988, we found it and rented it in less than four hours. Though the company operates in six countries, this example is why New Hampshire is the place to invest and grow."
