GE Opens New Additive Manufacturing Facility in Pittsburgh
As Pittsburgh natives, we’ve been awaiting the Opening of GE’s New Additive Manufacturing Facility there. The Grand Opening was earlier this week. Officially named the Center for Additive Technology Advancement (CATA), the plant is officially located southwest of the city near the airport in Findlay Township. The move symbolizes GE’s belief that improving the speed and effectiveness of additive manufacturing will give it a strategic advantage. Just “down the road” from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh – Hail Pitt – perhaps GE will collaborate with these schools on AM research.
According to Business Wire,
Having lived through the repeated Pittsburgh-based plant closings of the 80s and 90s, personally we’re hoping this is just the beginning of a bright, high-tech renaissance for SW Pennsylvania.
