General Electric (GE) recently opened a new state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing plant in Greenville, South Carolina.
The 125,000-square-foot Advanced Manufacturing Works (AMW) facility is expected to generate at least 80 engineering and manufacturing jobs. GE has invested $73 million in the plant to date and will invest another $327 million across the Greenville campus over the next several years.
"GE is leading the transformation of manufacturing in the power industry, and this facility will ignite the digital industrial revolution for our company and the industry," said Steve Bolze, GE Power president and CEO. "The opening of the AMW is a pivotal moment for us. We're building a skilled workforce and culture that's devoted to delivering breakthrough innovations that deliver better, faster outcomes for our customers and unlock new productivity and growth."
The AMW is GE Power's first advanced manufacturing plant. The facility is intended to revolutionize the way the company designs, creates and improves products by serving as an incubator for the development of advanced manufacturing processes and rapid prototyping of new parts for GE's energy businesses.
With the addition of the AMW, GE's Greenville site has grown to nearly 1.7 million square feet of factories, offices and laboratories as well as more than 3,200 employees focused on manufacturing advanced products.
