GE Aviation Selects Site for New Manufacturing Plant
Jan 20 16
GE Aviation has chosen the site for its newest manufacturing facility. The $400 million GE Turboprop Center of Excellence will create more than 500 jobs in the Czech Republic when it opens in 2020. The new facility will be used to manufacture the company's advanced turboprop engine that was launched in November 2015 to power Textron Aviation Inc.'s new single-engine turboprop aircraft. The engines will be built in GE Aviation's existing facilities until the new site is operational. The decision to open the facility in the Czech Republic follows the company's ongoing investment in Europe, which includes its 2008 acquisition of Czech Republic-based Walter Engines and its 2013 acquisition of Italy's Avio Aero. In total, GE Aviation has more than 12,000 workers in 22 facilities in Europe.
Praxair Surface Technologies and GE Aviation to Form Joint Venture
Jan 19 16
Praxair, Inc. announced that GE Aviation and Praxair Surface Technologies, Inc. have entered into a definitive agreement to form a joint venture for the development, support and application of specialized coatings. The coatings will be tailored for GE Aviation’s and CFM International’s current and future engine models, including the GE9X and LEAP engines. When created, the joint-venture company will expand its footprint with a new coatings plant in the southeast United States, which will supplement the services provided to GE from Praxair’s Indianapolis facility and other global operations. Additionally, under the agreement, Praxair Surface Technologies’ current scope of services provided to GE Aviation will be expanded. GE Aviation production volume will continue to grow due to a large backlog of commercial engine orders. Praxair Surface Technologies will be the majority owner of the venture and will consolidate the results. GE Aviation will hold the remaining membership interests. The parties plan to begin operations during the second quarter of 2016, once regulatory approvals are obtained.
