GE will build a new manufacturing facility outside of Pittsburgh in Findlay Twp., Pa., to drive innovation and implementation of advanced-manufacturing technologies across the company. The $32 million plant will initially create 50 high-tech engineering jobs. Construction is expected to begin in March 2015, with completion scheduled by September 2015. The facility will focus on improving capabilities and usage of additive manufacturing across GE while advancing materials sciences and inspection technologies.

GE’s Industrial Solutions business recently opened its new Advanced Manufacturing Lab (AML) in Plainville, Conn. The AML is using sophisticated robotics and automated manufacturing systems to design and build production lines for a new product platform to be launched in 2015. In just the past two years, GE has established new advanced-manufacturing locations for GE Power & Water in Greenville, S.C.; GE Aviation in Asheville, N.C.; and GE Oil & Gas in Jacksonville, Fla.
