GE to Develop Manufacturing Tech for Aviation in Turkish Lab 
18.11.2018

General Electric Aviation opened the Additive Manufacturing Technologies R&D Laboratory in TÜBİTAK Marmara Technopark Free Zone in a bid to support Turkey’s R&D know-how, develop state-of-the-art technologies, and thus foster competent engineers and researchers. Over 15 Turkish engineers have been recruited from the US, Germany, Netherlands, and Switzerland for US-based General Electric’s new lab in Gebze, south of Istanbul.

 

Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank, Deputy Trade Minister Gonca Işık Yılmaz Batur, TÜBİTAK President Prof. Dr. Hasan Mandal, Investment Office President Arda Ermut, and GE Turkey Chairwoman and General Manager Canan Özsoy attended the opening ceremony.

 

Speaking at the ceremony, Minister Varank stated that this facility was one of GE’s three global laboratories. He added that one of the goals of the Ministry is to position Turkey as a leading production hub in industry and technology. “We have embarked on our National Technology, Strong Industry vision. Our ultimate goal is to make Turkey a leading production hub in industry and technology. GE’s laboratory will be a milestone in making Turkey one of the future tech centers,” said Varank.

 

With the new R&D laboratory, GE’s total investment in Turkey exceeds USD 15 million.
