GE Aviation to begin hiring for composites plant

ELLISVILLE — GE Aviation will begin taking applications Nov. 5 for its new Ellisville-based composites factory.

The unit of General Electric Co. made the announcement last week as Gov. Phil Bryant visited the nearly completed plant.

The company expects to hire 250 workers within five years to make composite parts for aircraft engines and systems.

Positions will be posted with the state’s WIN Job Center in Laurel. GE Aviation plans to hire people in waves starting in March.

General Electric says it’s investing $56 million in the Ellisville plant to meet growing aerospace demand. The state is providing $8 million in incentives. Connecticut-based GE expanded the plant from 300,000 square feet to 340,000 square feet before construction started.

The company has run a 450-employee composite plant in Batesville since 2008.
