GE Adding 1,400 Jobs In Southwest Ohio
The parent company of Evendale-based GE Aviation is expanding operations near Cincinnati.
General Electric will open its new U.S. Global Operations Center here, breaking ground sometime this summer.
GE says the shared services center will create 1,400 jobs. GE’s Joe Allen says, “When we’re fully staffed and ready to go a few years from now, we could as many as 2,000 employees.”
Ohio Governor John Kasich called it “the biggest job announcement and single job growth in a decade.”
The company plans to be fully operational here by 2017.
When asked directly by Ohio Public Radio, both Governor John Kasich and GE’s Allen wouldn’t elaborate on what incentives were offered by the state to draw the company.
