Tomu designs and builds prefabricated guest rooms for use in hospitality construction using its proprietary modular building system to address the shortage in lodging supply and emerging traveler demand for more diverse and sustainable travel options. The company’s guest units come in both pre-designed and configurable options, allowing both independent and franchised hotel operators a way to reduce project development times and lower ongoing operating costs. Tomu was also recently named a finalist in the 2023 Hospitality Design Awards in the Sustainable Solutions category.
"Our move to Hagerstown Airport marks the most significant step for Tomu since the opening of our first facility in 2021,” said Chris Osaka, Chief Executive Officer of Tomu, Inc., “The airport has been a hub for innovation and manufacturing since its early days and we hope to reignite that legacy with the opening of this new facility.”
Hagerstown Regional Airport, also known as Richard A. Henson Field, has a rich history dating back to 1928 and saw significant growth when the Fairchild Aviation Corporation took over in 1929. During World War II, the Fairchild factory at Hagerstown produced training and transport aircraft for the war with over 10,000 aircraft produced before closing in 1984.
While celebrating this significant milestone, Tomu continues to raise its seed round to accredited investors.
