Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM -

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Gen­eral Elec­tric said Wed­nes­day that it will close its man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in Rochester next year and the work will be moved to China.

Bos­ton-based GE said its plant in the Rochester Sci­ence Park will close by June. The com­pany didn’t say how many peo­ple work at the fa­cil­ity, but GE of­fi­cials said the move af­fects fewer than 100 em­ploy­ees.

The Rochester plant as­sem­bles elec­tronic boards. GE of­fi­cials say the work will be moved to China, where it will be done by a GE part­ner sup­plier, St. Peters­burg, Fla.based Ja­bil.

Com­pany of­fi­cials say work­ers los­ing their jobs will re­ceive sev­er­ance pay and tu­ition re­im­burse­ment.
