GE in Singapore
In Singapore and around the world, GE is building a world that works — finding solutions to tough problems, investing in people and programs that help improve infrastructure and lives, to make a difference in the communities we serve.
In 1969, GE established its manufacturing operations in Jurong as one of the pioneering companies that catalyzed the growth of Singapore’s first modern industrial estate. Since then, we have transformed our operations in tandem with Singapore’s aspirations to become a strategic global node for advanced manufacturing, talent & innovation. GE Singapore is now a high technology, value-adding solutions provider, and a regional hub for commercial and treasury operations.
Today, we employ over 3,200 employees in Singapore — one of our largest and most diverse pools of talent in the region. We work closely with partners across the public and private sectors to grow and nurture this talent in alignment with Singapore’s goals for workforce productivity, innovation, and talent development. We are honored to play a pivotal role in shaping Singapore’s future, tapping on various growth opportunities available in the sectors of Aviation and Energy.
Future of Flight
GE Aerospace Singapore is one of our most efficient plants globally. We employ around 2000 staff locally and provide aircraft engine component manufacturing and repair services for more than 100 customers — including the Ministry of Defence, BoC Aviation, SIA group of companies, Japan Airlines, Korean Air and ST Aerospace (an independent, global leader in third party Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services). GE original parts are used within ST Aerospace’s network of MRO facilities globally.
We are proud to be one of the largest aircraft engine suppliers to Singapore’s Ministry of Defence, powering several of the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s fighter aircraft and helicopter fleets. In addition, we maintain an in-country field service team, which delivers performance-based logistics support.
GE operates a 50,000 square-foot smart factory within the Seletar Aerospace Park to produce high pressure compressor components. This cutting-edge facility plays a key role in producing the critical components for the GE9X engine that powers Boeing’s 777X aircraft and expands our digital manufacturing footprint amongst the top three aero-engine manufacturers in the world.
We also run two Engine Component Repair facilities in Loyang. Co-located within these facilities are an Automation & Robotic Center, Lean Lab, and Advanced Technology Center for developing leading edge repair capabilities. We are the first MRO facility worldwide to pioneer the use of additive technology in repairing jet engine components — doubling the amount of jet engine parts repaired daily, and allowing customers to return their aircrafts to the skies again with a quicker turnaround. This technology was co-developed by local engineers, alongside their peers at GE Aerospace Additive Manufacturing Technology Centers around the world.
As a major player across the global energy landscape, supplying one-third of the world’s electricity and boasting the broadest portfolio across the renewable energy industry, GE Renewable Energy and Power is well-positioned to help drive Singapore’s transition to a cleaner, greener energy future.
Singapore is a key regional hub for GE’s energy and power operations in the Asia Pacific and serves as a base for our work with local companies on projects across ASEAN, such as our partnership with Sembcorp on the Myingyan power project in Myanmar. Some of our local customers include Singapore Power, Starhub, Energy Market Authority, Keppel Infrastructure, ExxonMobil Asia Pacific, Senoko, Sembcorp, Shell, SRC, Seraya and Tuas Power. Our partnerships also extend across the globe — GE has worked with Sembcorp to provide floating high-voltage direct current (HVDC) substations that connect offshore wind farms in Northern Europe to coastal electricity transmission stations.
GE provides more than one-third of Singapore’s power generation and cogen installed capacity, with end-to-end life cycle management — including round-the-clock response through GE’s Monitoring & Diagnostics center in Asia, and our Operation & Maintenance hub in Singapore. This ensures that we can continually deliver high levels of reliable, efficient, and resilient power to Singapore’s citizens.
We have also expanded the capabilities of GE Repair Solutions Singapore (GRSS), a gas turbine repair Centre of Excellence for the region, which has been serving customers around the world for nearly 45 years. As of 2019, the center now boasts a new HA Repair & Development Centre that services and repairs high-efficiency, air cooled (HA) gas turbines, making it GE’s first HA Center outside of the USA. The center leverages global know-how, as well as shared expertise with GE’s wider supply chain network to significantly slash repair times for GE’s customers in the region. The new Advanced Manufacturing & Repair Technology (AMRT) Centre at GRSS aims to strengthen repair capabilities in the region, particularly for the HA fleet which ultimately support our customers decarbonization goals.
Our GE Volunteer Network in Singapore is committed to improving the lives of our local community, with citizen-driven initiatives that drive positive, lasting change. We encourage our employees to organize and participate in initiatives focused on education, environment, health, and community development.
Over the years, GE Singapore has dedicated over 4,000 hours in organizing and participating in annual community development events. For these efforts, GE’s volunteers have received several commendations, including a Gold Service Award from the Children's Charities Association of Singapore and the People’s Association Community Spirit Award in 2015 as well as the AmCham CARES Award from 2016 to 2018.
