VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- General Electric Co. is expanding its hiring plans in Michigan.
The company said Monday it expects to hire about 220 more workers in the state than it had announced last year.
That would bring the total of new jobs created by the company in Michigan to more than 1,300 over the next five years.
The company made the announcement on the same day as a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new facility for software and advanced manufacturing technology in Wayne County.
The newly announced jobs will be tied to GE's aviation business. About 130 jobs will be added to a facility near Van Buren Township and 90 jobs will be added to a facility in Muskegon.
