A recent announcement:

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) in 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.
