通用電子世界總部將遷址波士頓

通用電子主席Jeff Immelt在一份聲明中表示,“通用電子希望成為世界上最有競爭力的公司。今日,通用電子是一家1300億元,帶領業界做數位化轉型的全球高科技公司之一,希望能座落在與該公司有同樣願景的生態系統中。波士頓有55所大專院校,麻州在研發上花的錢比世界上任何其他地區都多,波士頓又吸引了多元化,科技力強的人,集中精力為世界化解挑戰。通用電子很為能把公司總部帶進這個充滿活力,又有創意的公司而感到興奮。
通用電子員工將從2016年夏天起,先遷進波士頓的一個臨時地點,經歷幾個步驟後,約2018年才完全搬遷過來。在波士頓,通用電子大約會有員工800人,其中200人為企業員工,600人為數位業的品經理,設計師,開發人員,分別來自通用電子的數位(Digital),趨勢( Current),機器人(robotics),以及生命科學等部門。
截至2015年12月31日,通用電子公司有305,000名員工,是一家發展,製造許多種消費者及商業用品的公司,目前總部設在康州史坦福(Stamford)。
通用電子為該公司總部的組成及地點,考慮了三年多,從2015年6月起正式檢視40個可能地點。有段時間,亞特蘭大一直是他們認定的地點,但是到2015年11月16日時,喬治亞州官員聽到通用電子計畫留在東北部消息,他們把這會在該州歷史上形成最大經濟發展影響的公司吸引過來的夢想,將無法成真。
根據納基金會,2012年的康州人均州及地方所得收為2053元,高居全美第二。麻州排名第四。
不過,納基金會表示,麻州在個及人所得,銷售,企業,物業等四項主要別中,都比康州更有吸引力。

GENERAL ELECTRIC CHOOSES 
BOSTON FOR HEADQUARTERS

麻州州長查理貝克(Charlie Baker)和市長馬丁華殊(Martin Walsh113日聯袂宣佈,通用電子(GE)公司決定把世界總部遷至波士頓,以充分利用波士頓市集麻州的創新經濟競爭力,並就近接觸世界級教育機構所培養出來的人才。

通用電子公司將為波士頓市帶來800個高薪工作機會。
通用電子將在海港區營運,勢必成為波士頓市創新業界龍頭。麻州政府為此提供了一億二千萬元補助款及各種優惠,波士頓市也藉物業稅減免等提供了2500萬元獎勵。通用電子獲得的其他獎勵包括:
100萬元人力培訓補助款;最高500萬元的建立創新中心補助,以為通用電子和麻州研究機構,高等學府中的創新者搭橋;承諾改善海港區的現有地方交通;指派一個聯合遷址團隊以紓緩員工遷進波士頓的過渡需要;為符合資格,想要在波士頓買房子的員工提供協助。
