CHARLESTON, W.Va. West Virginia officials have given initial approval for a $5 million loan for a private company to buy a 691-acre tactical training complex in Hardy County.
The state Economic Development Authority on Thursday gave initial approval to Oil Fields-based TenX Group for the former Moorefield Training Center.
TenX offers training services and support to special operations forces and national intelligence agencies.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports (http://bit.ly/1bNxiYV) that the company founded in 2011 hopes to expand from seven employees to 40 over the next 3 years through the acquisition.
TenX plans to rename the facility as the Panthera Training Center.
The complex features more than 16 miles of paved and off-road vehicle training, nine firing ranges, a demolition explosives range, obstacle course, mock town setup, barracks and several classrooms.
