GE Aviation announced plans to locate a new Electrical Power Integrated Systems Research and Development Center (EPISCENTER) on the University of Dayton campus in Dayton, OH. The proposed site is located in the Ohio Aerospace Hub of Innovation, enabling GE Aviation to participate as an initial launch partner of the Hub. The center will be a catalyst for new contracts and products resulting in job growth at the EPISCENTER and at GE locations such as Vandalia. The $51 million center will be built on about 8 acres. The university will work with CityWide Development Corp. to build the facility. GE anticipates entering into a long-term lease agreement with the University of Dayton and CityWide following an environmental review and clearance. The 115,000-ft² facility is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2012 and operational by the end of 2012.
