GE Aviation Announces Mississippi Plant

GE Aviation recently announced plans to open a new manufacturing facility in Ellisville, Miss., to meet accelerating global demand. The company will invest $56 million in the new facility.

The 300,000-sq-ft facility will manufacture advanced composite components for aircraft engines and systems for GE Aviation’s growing business. The company is targeting production to begin in 2013; 250 new high-tech manufacturing jobs will reportedly be created by 2016.

“We are excited to expand our production capability in Mississippi with the opening of a second plant that will create hundreds of new high-tech jobs this decade for the state,” said David Joyce, president and CEO of GE Aviation. “GE has invested more than $12 billion in the research and development of reliable technology innovation over the past 10 years, and [this] announcement shows that commitment is paying off.”
