BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA - June 10, 2015 - GE (NYSE: GE) today officially opened its new 10,000 square metre Springfield office at a ceremony held on-site with Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. The facility brings together multiple business units, teams and roles under one roof in an agile workplace designed to encourage greater collaboration and innovation across GE’s businesses. 

“This is a significant investment in GE’s Queensland operations, and provides a dynamic state-of-the-art environment for our people to work in,” said Geoff Culbert, President & CEO, GE Australia, New Zealand and PNG. “The open plan space allows teams to mix and more easily interact, facilitating the cross-pollination of ideas across the business - which is when the best innovations occur. We’re excited to bring our businesses together in Springfield, and are proud of the facilities we have created here.”

City founder and Chairman of Springfield Land Corporation Maha Sinnathamby said he was delighted that GE had chosen Greater Springfield for its first ever consolidated Queensland state headquarters. “This is another welcome affirmation for Greater Springfield and a great endorsement for Queensland as a place to conduct business.”

“The $72 million building is cutting edge in its design which reflects the world class innovation and expertise that GE demonstrates daily across its entire business.

“We can only anticipate with excitement about what the future holds for GE in Greater Springfield, given the potential synergies that exist between what GE does and our world-first health and education precincts which are nation building projects.”

The new GE Queensland Headquarters will house 500 GE staff over three floors and will bring together GE businesses including Power & Water, Mining, Healthcare and Transportation.

GE’s history in Queensland dates back to 1896 with the supply and installation of the electric motors that powered Brisbane’s first tramways. Today, GE is involved in every LNG project in the state.
