GE Launches Global Research, Technology Innovation and Manufacturing in Saudi Arabia

GE is focused on bringing its technological leadership in advanced materials science, predictive analytics as well as developing the most efficient and cost-effective energy systems. This will enable customers to optimize asset performance and operations for increased production and higher efficiencies.

Developed as part of GE’s 2012 US$ 1 billion investment, the Saudi GE Innovation Center has recorded its first technology patent, delivered training to over 600 professionals on energy efficiency technologies, hosted numerous thought leadership forums, and welcomed over 1,000 high-profile industry visitors.

Also part of the investment, GE Manufacturing Technology Center is today a Center of Excellence that has serviced over 550 gas turbines, supports 70 customers in 30 countries exporting 80 percent of its parts. The facility employs over 700 skilled workers, 75 percent of them Saudi professionals.

Another important milestone was the ground-breaking for the expansion of the GE Oil & Gas Manufacturing Facility, located in Dammam 2nd Industrial City, which covers an area of approximately 40,000 square meters. It builds on today’s Pressure Control equipment manufacturing capabilities, with plans to package and assemble equipment for GE Oil & Gas businesses including expanding Pressure Control, Measurement & Control, Subsea Systems and artificial lift.

With a presence of over 80 years, three offices and seven facilities, Saudi Arabia accounts for the largest GE workforce in the Middle East with over 1,600 employees driving the healthcare, transportation, power, oil & gas, water and aviation businesses. GE is focused on taking its work into the next industrial era with technological solutions that create economic and social value to the country and its people.
