Asheville, NC - Governor Pat McCrory congratulated GE Aviation today at a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the company’s new $125 million advanced composites factory near Asheville in Buncombe County. GE is a global leader in jet engine and aircraft system production.
“We are excited for GE Aviation and its new CMC (ceramic matrix composite) facility in Asheville,” said Governor McCrory. “The aviation sector is an important industry for our state, and GE continues to put North Carolina on a national and international stage with its investment. We’re proud that these advanced engine components will be manufactured right here in Asheville.”
GE will begin hiring at the new plant in 2014 and expects to employ 340 people at full capacity. The company currently employs 290 people in Asheville. The Buncombe County CMC facility is part of a larger four-county project that includes Durham, West Jefferson and Wilmington. GE currently employs more than 1,300 people at its four North Carolina sites.
The new 170,000-square-foot Asheville facility, built next to an existing GE Aviation machining plant, will be the first in the world to mass produce engine components made of advanced ceramic matrix composite materials. CMC technology, which is a significant breakthrough for GE and the jet propulsion industry, will result in enhanced performance and improved durability of jet engines. That will translate into lower fuel and maintenance costs for customers. CMCs are made of silicon carbide ceramic fibers and ceramic resin, manufactured through a highly sophisticated process and further enhanced with proprietary coatings.
GE Aviation, a division of General Electric Company, is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial and military jet engines and components as well as integrated digital, electric power and mechanical systems for aircraft. GE Aviation also manufactures gas turbines, derived from its highly successful jet engine programs, for marine and industrial applications. In addition, GE Aviation provides comprehensive maintenance support for jet engines in service throughout the world.

Unbelievably Attorney General Roy Cooper is doubling down on his support for same-sex “marriage.”
Last week we told you about his decision to headline a major fundraising event for EqualityNC – the very group that is pushing the challenge to our marriage amendment.
Well this week the Attorney General announced that he personally supports same-sex “marriage”.
This is the Attorney General that we are depending on to protect our Marriage Amendment and defend North Carolina’s Constitution in Court!
To make matters worse, immediately following the Attorney General’s announcement yesterday that he supports allowing same-sex couples to marry, the Register of Deeds in Buncombe County announced that he would accept applications for marriage licenses for same-sex couples.
This is a clear and deliberate violation of the law!
It’s obvious we can’t depend on the Attorney General. Elected public officials are not allowed to violate the will of the majority of voters in North Carolina just because they do not like the law, and our Attorney General should not be parading around the State undermining the very laws he is charged with defending.
The Attorney General owes his allegiance to the people of our State who passed our marriage laws by referendum, not to his own political ambitions.
We can’t depend on Roy Cooper to defend the amendment when he is clearly focusing on running for another political office. This guy has already announced that he’s running for Governor in 2016. We are paying him with our tax dollars to campaign for the next 3+years.
