GE Energy Opens New Facility In Shanghai

The environmental services business
of Atlanta-based GE Energy has established a new facility in Shanghai in order to better serve its
customers in the area. The facility, which consolidates several operations at other locations,
consists of 7,000 square meters of laboratories, office space and production facilities.

The new facility manufacturers industrial air filtration products, and waterproof breathable
membranes for performance outerwear and microfiltration applications. Production began in October
2007 and will increase in three phases through October 2008.

“China is an important growth region for our environmental services business and
inaugurating this new manufacturing facility in Shanghai will give us the opportunity to further
expand our footprint in the region,” said Daniel Heintzelman, president of GE Energy’s
environmental services business. “Most importantly, this new world-class production facility will
enable us to improve customer excellence while delivering products to our customers.”
