General Electric (NYSE:GE) has been another leader in the reshoring trend. The company opened two new assembly lines — the first in 55 years — in legendary Appliance Park earlier this year, and another one is on the way.
That’s just one piece of the company’s plans to create more American jobs and build 15 new factories.
Many new facilities will be making parts that GE has never before produced domestically. In some cases, it has meant a redesigning and rethinking of the product, its part and the manufacturing processes … but that also has allowed some products to end up being cheaper than the “China price,” as The Atlantic recently described.
GE has a map on its website that breaks down of all the new jobs it has created here in the states since 2009 — more than 15,500 in 20 different states.
