It is nice to see positive announcements like the above. Manufacturing jet engines is a sophisticated process. The newest GE Aviation facility in Muskegon (Johnson Technologies – a wholly owned subsidiary of GE) produces two small parts….high pressure turbine nozzles and shrouds for the GE90 engine.

I would guess also that the turbine airfoils come from Arconic (formerly Alcoa Howmet)┬áin Whitehall, MI. All the parts come together at various GE assembly plants to complete the engine. One of those assembly plants is in the RTP area….it’s a small world….parts made in Muskegon and Whitehall, Mi come together in an assembly plant a few miles from Cary, NC.
