General Electric’s Power & Water branch is to invest $400 million in a decade-long project in which will see it greatly expand its advanced manufacturing abilities.

The site in South Carolina, US, will serve as a hub for process development and prototyping and sits in close proximity to GE’s Greenville campus, allowing the company to cut down time to market.

It is set to open in 2015 and will see the creation of more than 80 jobs. GE already has more than 3,000 employees in Greenville and has invested around half a billion dollars on improving the Power & Water campus.

The company has established valuable relationships with local community schools, universities and technical programs to develop new technologies and create a system to support those who are passionate about growing with the industry.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has welcomed the move and acknowledged the important role GE plays in the local economy and community.

GE Power & Water provides customers with a broad array of power generation, energy delivery and water process technologies, operating in both renewable and non-renewable energy spaces.
