GE has announced plans to invest over $450 million in its existing US manufacturing facilities this year, with the purchase of new equipment and making upgrades said to position the company for a strong future in advance of its planned creation of two independent companies in energy and aerospace.
Of this investment, GE Aerospace expects to spend more than $335 million across its US facilities, including an investment of $16 million to upgrade its Additive Manufacturing capabilities in Auburn, Alabama.
“GE Aerospace is a world leader in aircraft engine production due in large part to the strength and ingenuity of our US employee base,” stated H Lawrence Culp, Jr, chairman and CEO of GE and CEO of GE Aerospace. “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.”
