Jessica Ensani, Plant Leader at GE Aviation in West Jefferson

GE Aviation came to Ashe County in 2007. The 120,000 square foot facility currently employs over 150 people and manufactures rotating parts for commercial aircraft engines. The people of Ashe County make this a special place to live and work. Employee involvement in decision making and dedication to the success of the business has made the operation extremely successful over the past several years. This success has encouraged GE to invest over $30M and grow the site by more than 70% since 2007.
