GE Healthcare is expanding its existing magnet resonance imaging (MRI) components production operations in Columbia, SC. The new $40 million capacity expansion is projected to create 100 new jobs.
“At GE Healthcare, we are committed to helping to solve some of the toughest challenges in healthcare, as well as making an impact in our local communities where we live and work,” said GE Healthcare Florence Plant Manager Dale Wolf. “We are thrilled to continue to expand our capabilities and invest in Florence. Our vision is to bring the benefits of MRI to more patients around the world; expanding our product line and capabilities in Florence is a step toward helping us achieve that vision.”
Chicago-based GE Healthcare will be expanding its production of MRI components to accommodate several new products in the company’s portfolio. The existing 500,000-square-foot facility specializes in designing, manufacturing and testing the superconducting magnet components of the system.
“This latest investment by GE Healthcare in Florence County is a tremendous example of how companies of all sizes can thrive here,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “With companies like this one leading South Carolina’s manufacturing industry, there is no doubt that our state is going straight to the top.”
