GE Aviation Expands West Jefferson Facility
Jul 9 15
GE Aviation hosted a grand opening ceremony at the site of its machining factory in West Jefferson, N.C. The grand opening comes amidst a crucial effort to encourage Congress to reauthorize the Export Import Bank of the United States, commonly referred to as the EXIM Bank. GE Aviation's $65 million investment in the new 80,000-square-foot expansion will allow for increased capacity as the shop assumes additional machining work. The increase in volume is driven largely by orders for the new LEAP jet engine of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company of GE and Snecma (Safran) of France. To date, CFM has logged total orders and commitments with airlines for more than 9,550 LEAP engines, which enters service in 2016. It will power the new Airbus A320neo, Boeing 737 MAX and COMAC (China) C919 aircraft for airlines worldwide. GE has hired 45 additional employees for the expanded facility so far and plans to hire 60 more over the next couple of years, pushing the plant's total workforce to more than 285. These employees do both rough and finished machining of components for the core of the engine--disks, spools and shafts. The new facility is part of a larger commitment by GE Aviation to invest $195 million across its North Carolina operations through 2017. GE Aviation employs more than 1,500 people in North Carolina at sites in Durham, West Jefferson, Wilmington and Asheville. The West Jefferson expansion, combined with the new facility in Asheville and plant and equipment upgrades at existing sites across North Carolina, will account for more than 240 additional GE jobs in North Carolina by 2017.
