GE Aviation is investing more than $200 million to construct two factories on 100 acres in Huntsville, Alabama. One plant will mass produce silicon carbide (SiC) ceramic fiber, the first high volume production operation in the U.S. The adjacent GE factory on the same campus will use the SiC ceramic fiber to make unidirectional CMC prepreg necessary to fabricate the CMC components . Once fully operational, the Huntsville facilities will employ up to 300 people. Huntsville is consistently named as one of the best places to live and work by a variety of national publications. The city successfully combines the rich heritage of Southern hospitality with innovative high-tech ventures and cultural diversity. Technology, space, and defense industries have a major presence here with the Army's Redstone Arsenal, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, and Cummings Research Park. The quality of life is second to none - with a variety of educational, recreational, and cultural opportunities.
