“The vision here is trying to make a campus that’s collaborative, innovative, full of technology that’s testing our latest engines, that’s developing our latest materials,” said Tim Meyers, Evendale plant manager. “So it’s exciting. We’re in a really good spot (for) an aviation headquarters.”

GE Aviation has about 6,500 workers in Evendale, 7,500 employees in Greater Cincinnati and more than 9,000 in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky.
