GE Spends $400M for Power & Water Factory
General Electric will construct a new Power & Water manufacturing facility in Greenville, SC. GE plans to invest $400 million over the next 10 years in Greenville to expand the company’s advanced manufacturing capabilities.
The facility will serve as an incubator for advanced manufacturing process development and rapid prototyping for the Power & Water businesses, including wind turbines, heavy duty gas engines, distributed power gas engines, nuclear power services and water processing.
GE started in Greenville more than 40 years ago with a 340,000-sq-foot site. The site has since grown into more than 1.5 million square feet of factory and offices. GE has more than 3,000 employees in Greenville and, in the past five years, has invested more than $500 million to bolster manufacturing activities housed on the GE Power & Water campus.
