General Electric to Open New Dayton Plant

General Electric's aviation unit plans to open a plant in Dayton next year.  The Dayton Daily News reports that two other plants in Mississippi and Alabama will be open next year, which will create over 400 new jobs at all three locations.

The company says it's part of a $580 million investment in its aviation business over the next five years.  GE also says it will hire 12,000 new workers over the next several years, including 5,00 veterans, as part of its expansion.
