With today’s announcement that GE has selected Greater Cincinnati for its new U.S. Global Operations Center, a project that is expected to create 1,400 new local jobs, State Representative Peter Stautberg (R-Anderson Township) released the following statement:

“This is very exciting news for the Cincinnati area and our communities that are striving for opportunities, investment and economic growth. I applaud GE, JobsOhio and Regional Economic Development Initiative Cincinnati for their collaboration to make this investment possible and to help build our local economy. Providing these jobs for the people of Greater Cincinnati will continue to strengthen our communities.”

According to a joint press release from GE and JobsOhio, GE will break ground this summer and anticipates that the facility will be operational by 2017. The investment was secured by JobsOhio, which worked with GE to provide information on suitable sites for the center as well as economic development assistance. Ohio was one of a number of other locations that were in competition for the investment.
