GE Aviation recently broke ground on its new lean engine component manufacturing facility for both civil/military aviation and aero derivative applications. The facility will be built on 53 acres in the Miami Valley Research Park located in Beavercreek, Ohio.
The 280,000 square foot facility is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2022 and fully operational by the end of 2022. The new facility will optimize manufacturing operations and advanced technology development into one facility, combining operations from seven buildings into one. GE currently has approximately 400 hourly and salaried employees who will be located at the new facility.
GE Aviation’s new facility will focus on new technology development as well as new product introduction. The facility will develop and manufacture gas turbine engine components and mechanical systems for a variety of industries, including aviation, space, defense, and oil and gas.
In January 2021, the City of Beavercreek Planning Commission approved a rezoning of the property and approved the site plans in February.
