GE to Open Huge Tech Center Just Outside of Detroit

Thursday, July 2, 2009
General Electric’s new Advanced Manufacturing and Software Technology Center, slated to open later this year in Michigan’s Van Buren Township, will house scientists and engineers charged with developing next-generation manufacturing technologies to support GE’s renewable-energy, aircraft-engine and other high-technology products. The center is expected to employ more than 1100 people within the next few years. The state of Michigan is providing more than $60 million in incentives over the next 12 years to support the center, to be housed in a new $100 million, 100,000-sq.-ft. facility.
