General Electric hopes to hire 1,100 technology workers by 2013
General Electric hopes to bring 1,100 jobs to a Michigan technology center by 2013. The 2 year old center is located outside of Detroit. GE is developing new software and other technology.
Deia Campanelli is with GE’s Advanced Manufacturing and Software Technology Center.
"Michigan has an exceptional number of talented experienced professionals, and the state has some strong advanced manufacturing capabilities and information technologists that are really just on the forefront of where industry is headed. So it makes putting jobs in Michigan a really easy decision."
Campanelli says the center has hired 660 workers to date. 90% of those hires are from Michigan.
