GE Aviation adds facility in China

  • 10-Mar-2009 11:34 EDT
GE Aviation has opened a new systems manufacturing facility in Suzhou, China. The expansion covers 18,600 m², and workers there will be capable of producing autoclaved composite parts, mechanical fabrications, structure assembly, and civil aircraft actuation systems. Current plans are to ramp up Chinese labor in the new factory to more than 200 employees in 2009. The facility is a strategic focus in support of key customer requirements, including parts for Boeing’s 737, 777, and 787; Airbus's A320, A330, and A340; and China’s emerging ARJ21 regional jet. Future plans include the addition of an electronics assembly and test capability.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
