GE recently announced that it will build a new manufacturing facility in Findlay Township, Pennsylvania, to drive innovation and implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies.
The new facility represents a $32-million investment by the company over three years and will result in the creation of 50 high-tech engineering jobs ranging from mechanical and electrical to systems and software engineering.
The facility will focus on improving capabilities and usage of additive manufacturing across GE while advancing materials sciences and inspection technologies. Construction is expected to begin in March 2015 and be completed by September 2015.
"Advanced manufacturing is driving a profound change in industry and at GE," said Dan Heintzelman, GE vice chairman. "It is how we will compete and win in the future. We can more efficiently invent and build products for our customers while driving better margins for our investors. This new facility is crucial for bringing advanced manufacturing technology to all our businesses."
In the past two years, GE has established new advanced manufacturing locations in Greenville, South Carolina; Asheville, North Carolina; and Jacksonville, Florida; while expanding work in Auburn, Alabama; and improving manufacturing in Rutland, Vermont.
