GE expands Wuxi plant to serve China’s growing cleaner energy and water sectors

“The expansion of the Wuxi manufacturing facility will greatly enhance our capability to help our customers implement projects to more quickly comply with China’s increasingly stringent, cleaner air and water regulations,” said Jeff Connelly, vice present, engineered systems − water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.

Following the expansion, the lead-time from order to shipment can be reduced by 6−10 weeks, compared with ordering the same product from a GE manufacturing facility in the US.

This is the second time that GE has expanded the Wuxi facility since it opened in 2004. Originally the plant supplied specialty chemicals to customers in China, and GE completed a 10 000 sq m expansion in 2008 to begin manufacturing advanced water filtration technologies.
