Limestone County received more positive economic development news Tuesday with Gov. Robert Bentley’s announcement that General Electric Aviation would build a $200 million manufacturing plant.
GE plans to build two adjacent factories on Greenbrier Road, just south of Interstate 565 in Huntsville-annexed Limestone County. The operation will employ up to 300 workers when it becomes operational in 2018.
Sanjay Correa, GE’s vice president of Aviation, said construction on the facility would begin next year, as would the hiring of the plant’s hourly workforce.
“It’s another great day for Limestone County,” said Limestone County Commission Chairman Mark Yarbrough. “This is another example of the commitment the Limestone County Commission made for new jobs and opportunities for residents. We’re excited, and we’re not through yet.”
