GE site celebrates 1,000th locomotive built


    GE Manufacturing Solutions, a subsidiary of GE, has celebrated the completion of the 1,000th locomotives to be built at its factory in Fort Worth.

    Fort Worth, which has a footprint of around a million square feet, began building locomotives in 2013 and now employs around 700 people.

    The 1,000th locomotive to leave the production line was an Evolution Series Tier 4 unit for Canadian National Railway (CN).

    Richard Simpson, vice president and global supply chain leader for GE Transportation, said: “This milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team here in Fort Worth.

    “In less than four years, this team helped start up the GE Manufacturing Solutions facility and built 1,000 high-quality, competitive locomotives for our customers.”
