Slower Staff-Up at GE

Business Review (Full text of article is subscribers only)
Health Care: GE’s digital X-ray center will mean 100 new jobs at $65K a year

Even so, sluggish demand means North Greenbush plant won’t be fully staffed for two or three years

GE Healthcare’s new $165 million manufacturing center in North Greenbush will open in a few months, but slowing demand for digital imaging equipment means it will take longer to ramp up its staffing and production.
Initially, it looks like 50 people will transfer from Niskayuna when the site opens. Up to 100 more jobs are planned, but it will take until 2011 or 2012 to get everyone on board, with new jobs phased in as demand returns.
