Last month, GE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt was at the laboratory to announce plans to build a $100 million battery plant in the Capital Region that will employ 350 people.
A site for the battery plant hasn’t yet been announced, but state Sen. Roy McDonald pointed to vacant land across from the new X-ray plant and suggested to the crowd that GE put it “right there.”
