GE's Power & Water unit has commenced construction on its first Advanced Manufacturing Works facility, to be built in Greenville, S.C. According to GE, the facility will serve as an incubator for innovative manufacturing process development and rapid prototyping for the Power & Water businesses, including wind turbines.

GE plans to invest $400 million over the next 10 years in Greenville to expand the company's manufacturing capabilities. The new facility is expected to open in 2015 and create more than 80 jobs. The company says it currently 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 already-standing GE Power & Water campus.

“Greenville serves as the ideal location for the Power & Water advanced manufacturing site,” comments GE Power & Water President and CEO Steve Bolze. “Here we will be able to deliver even more innovative breakthrough products and services, work better with each other and our customers, and bring best-in-class technologies to market quicker.”
