Last week in Washington, DC, GE hosted a four-day summit focused on U.S. manufacturing, innovation and jobs. “American businesses can compete and win anywhere,” said GE Chairman’s Jeff Immelt, in opening the summit, and underscoring that point, GE announced it is opening a new appliance plant in Louisville, Kentucky, the first in fifty years. Workers at the new plant will make high-tech GeoSpring hybrid water heaters whose production GE repatriated from China. The GeoSpring is just one of the thousands and thousands of things—from infinitesimal nano-level technology to entire power plants, like the FlexEfficiency 50 Combined Cycle power plant—that GE workers build and make each day, around the world.
Here are 140 of those things. Enjoy!
