Join your fellow colleagues for a virtual site visit with General Electric (GE). Our host, Tony Denhart, will provide attendees with an overview of recruiting at GE followed by a tour of GE Aviation's jet engine assembly facility in Lafayette, Indiana. The site visit will conclude with a Q&A session.


The new 225,000-square-foot facility in Lafayette will assemble the new LEAP engine of CFM International, a 50/50 joint company of GE and Snecma (Safran) of France. CFM has logged total orders and commitments with airlines for more than 14,500+ LEAP jet engines – and entered service in 2016. It will power new Airbus A320neo, Boeing 737 MAX, and COMAC (China) C919 aircraft for airlines worldwide.

At GE, we keep our legacy in motion by living our core beliefs. We act. We learn. We get better. We are never satisfied with being satisfied and we constantly insist on being more tomorrow than we are today. Some companies are retreating – we are moving our culture and our opportunities forward to embrace the digital industrial future.
