GE Aviation Opens Electrical Power R&D Center

GE Aviation celebrated in Dayton today the grand opening of its $53 million Electrical Power Integrated Systems Center - an investment that will stimulate economic growth in the region and collaborative research on the campus of the University of Dayton.

For the festivities, GE Aviation Vice President Brad Mottier joined Daniel J. Curran, president of the University of Dayton, Ohio Lt. Governor Mary Taylor, Secretary of State Jon Husted, Major General Thomas Masiello and Kurt Erbacher with Gulfstream Aerospace.

“GE Aviation’s partnership with the University of Dayton is creating long-term economic growth,” said Brad Mottier, vice president of Business & General Aviation and Integrated Systems for GE Aviation. “The center fosters collaborative research with our customers with a goal of decreasing system development time and improving on-time delivery of new aircraft.”

The center, believed to be the only one of its kind because of its capability to simulate and test complete electrical power systems in airplanes, is located on about eight acres on the University of Dayton’s campus on River Park Drive along the Great Miami River.

“The EPISCenter is a cornerstone in the continued revitalization of Dayton. It is a shining example of the potential of the Ohio’s Aerospace Hub,” said Curran, president of the University of Dayton. “In the higher education landscape nationally, we believe this innovative partnership can be a model for the future.”

The new 138,000-square-foot facility is the intellectual heart and soul of GE’s electrical power business with the employment of potentially 150–200 researchers in the next five years, depending on future programs.

"GE continues to grow and further its commitment to the state of Ohio thanks to projects like the EPISCenter,” said Lt. Governor Mary Taylor. “This new research and development facility will create good paying jobs for Ohioans, generate growth for the local economy and is further proof that Dayton is and always will be the birthplace of aviation."
