GE Breaks Ground for New Aerospace Parts Plant

June 3, 2021
Construction has started for a lean manufacturing plant in Ohio, where GE will produce engine components for civil and military aircraft programs and aero-derivative applications.

GE Aviation started building a new manufacturing plant in suburban Dayton, Ohio, to produce engine components for civil and military aircraft, as well as “aero derivative applications. The 280,000-sq.ft, lean manufacturing plant will be completed early next year and fully operational by the end of 2022.

The new plant will develop and manufacture gas turbine engine parts and new mechanical systems for aerospace customers, including commercial aviation, space, and defense programs. Some “aero derivative” applications also will be developed.

GE revealed its development project late last year when it signed a letter of intent to acquire the property in Beavercreek, Ohio. The site is close to a plant operated by Unison, a GE subsidiary that develops and produces electrical and mechanical components and systems for aircraft engines and airframes.  

In December a GE spokeswoman said the business planned to optimize seven manufacturing operations at one location, including new product and new technology development and some current high-mix/low-volume production programs.

The new plant will develop and manufacture gas turbine engine parts and new mechanical systems for aerospace customers, including commercial aviation, space, and defense programs. Some “aero derivative” applications also will be developed.
