AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – GE Aviation is opening a $50 million factory that will provide several hundred jobs in east Alabama.
The company has a ribbon-cutting Monday morning for a new plant that will make parts for GE jet engines.
The 300,000-square-foot factory is located at Auburn Technology Park West, and officials say it’s expected to hire between 300 and 400 people in coming years.
Gov. Robert Bentley and House Speaker Mike Hubbard are among those scheduled to attend the plant opening.
