NEWS RELEASE – Pure Development breaks ground on advanced manufacturing facility for GE Aviation subsidiary

Indianapolis, IN, – Pure Development has recently begun construction on an advanced manufacturing facility for GE Aviation in Beavercreek, OH.

 The new 280,000-square-foot facility will house new lean engine manufacturing of complex gas turbine engine components and electrical and mechanical systems for civil and military aviation applications, as well as aero derivative applications. This new facility will enable GE Aviation, which is currently leasing multiple facilities throughout the Dayton, OH area, to enhance its operational quality and efficiency by centralizing and consolidating all functions under one roof.

“This state-of-the-art facility will provide GE Aviation exactly what its team needs to take operations and output to the next level,” said Drew Sanders, co-founder and principal at Pure Development. “As a supplier to nearly every engine and airframe program providing the most advanced performance solutions for a wide variety of markets, GE Aviation needs a facility uniquely designed and built to reach its goals. We’re excited to make this facility a reality, and we’re proud of our growing partnership with General Electric and GE Aviation.”

The new facility will feature institutional-quality construction of framed structural steel, insulated concrete wall panels and high-performance glazing, with 40,000-square-feet of office space and 240,000-square-feet of manufacturing and assembly. The facility is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2022 and fully operational by the end of 2022.

This will be the fifth large-scale, build-to-suit advanced manufacturing facility Pure Development has built for GE Aviation. Others include two composites plants in Mississippi; a blisk plant in Hooksett, NH; and GE Aviation’s world-class LEAP engine assembly plant in Lafayette, IN.
