GE shifts from Rochester, N.Y., to China
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.
