Come to GreenvilleOnline.com tomorrow morning for details on a major expansion of General Electric Co.'s local complex.

Steve Bolze, chief executive of GE's Power & Water unit, its largest industrial business, will be on hand for the 11 a.m. announcement, GE said in an advisory to news media this afternoon.

Also attending the jobs announcement will be Gov. Nikki Haley and U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, GE said.

GE, a global conglomerate based in Fairfield, Conn., makes power-producing turbines at its complex on Garlington Road, which is also an engineering center for various of its energy businesses.

The complex employs about 3,200 workers, about half of them engineers.

Amazing how this is announced on election day so the politicians can show up, claim credit, and get free election publicity.

400 million and only 80 jobs. Not quite the large announcement many expected.

80 jobs is still good, especially at their pay grade. And it will make it a little bit more difficult for GE to move in the future so their presence will be around for a while longer. Good news.

Maybe it will make up for the layoffs from last year.
