GE announced plans to invest more than $450 million in its existing U.S. manufacturing facilities this year, purchasing cutting-edge equipment and making upgrades to position the company and its U.S. workforce for a strong future ahead of GE’s planned separation into two independent, industry-leading companies in energy and aerospace.
This year, GE Aerospace anticipates investing more than $335 million in its U.S. operations. Presently, Aerospace has more than 800 job opportunities available on external websites.
H. Lawrence Culp, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of GE and CEO of GE Aerospace, stated, “GE Aerospace is a world leader in aircraft engine production due in large part to the strength and ingenuity of our U.S. employee base. “The investments we’re making this year support cutting-edge technology that will help advance the next generation of aerospace manufacturing, ensuring a strong future for our employees, our business, the industry, and our commercial and military customers.”
