General Electric’s Power Generation Services will in late May move into 33,000 square feet of the former GE medium transformer plant on Redmond Circle in Rome, Ga.
The operation is moving to Rome from Richmond, Va., reports Rome News-Tribune.
The facility will house newly manufactured and refurbished machinery, such as rotors, compressors, discharge casings, turbine shells and generator fields, the paper reports.
Sabrina Quillian, materials manager for General Electric Power Generation Services, said in a prepared statement the repurposing of the GE site in Rome makes good use of existing infrastructure and offers significant room for future expansion.
General Electric (NYSE: GE) personnel from a warehouse in Union City, Ga., will operate the Rome facility on an as-needed basis, the News-Tribune reports.
