GE Aviation plant update

ELLISVILLE, Miss. -- The ground work for the new GE Aviation in Ellisville is nearly complete and company officials will soon make a decision on a general contractor for the 300,000-square-foot plant. "We hope to have the building complete by the end of the year and move our equipment in by early 2013," said Rick Kennedy, GE Aviation's media relations manager. The $56 million project is in the Howard Technology Park, not far from Hattiesburg, and is the second GE Aviation plant in the state. The other, in Batesville, produces composite components for aircraft engines. (Source: Laurel Leader-Call, 01/29/12)
