GE Aviation acquires pair of precision manufacturing companies

  • 30-Nov-2012 12:05 EST

GE Aviation has acquired the assets of Morris Technologies and its sister company, Rapid Quality Manufacturing, precision manufacturing companies operating in suburban Cincinnati, OH. The companies, with about 130 employees, specialize in additive manufacturing, an automated process for creating rapid prototypes and end-use production components. With this acquisition, GE Aviation expands its engineering and manufacturing capabilities to meet its growing jet engine production rates over the next five years. Morris Technologies (Sharonville, OH) and Rapid Quality Manufacturing (West Chester, OH) have supplied parts to GE Aviation for several years, as well as to GE Power Systems and GE Global Research Center. The Sharonville and West Chester facilities will become part of GE Aviation's global network of manufacturing operations. Both companies focus on the aerospace, energy, oil & gas, and medical industries.
