GE Energy Management opened a new office in Cary, N.C., as a collaborative workplace for experts from a variety of GE businesses. Opening this office near GE’s Mebane manufacturing plant enables the company to streamline the development and production processes of its end-to-end electrical distribution product portfolio.

Located just miles from the company’s Mebane facility — which manufactures products such as lighting panels, power panels, low- and medium-voltage motor control equipment, switchgear and electrical vehicle charging stations —the Cary office co-locates GE’s engineering and product management with other critical functions under one roof. In addition, it creates a global headquarters for GE’s Power Components and Power Equipment businesses.

"Our new Cary office brings employees from three of GE Energy Management’s businesses—Industrial Solutions, Digital Energy and Intelligent Platforms—together under one roof, enabling them to easily work together on projects across a spectrum of industries," said Stuart Thompson, general manager of Power Equipment, GE’s Industrial Solutions business. "That tight-knit integration, along with the facility’s close proximity to our existing Mebane manufacturing operation, enables us to streamline multiple stages of our product development and manufacturing, creating a more efficient process."
