GE Oil & Gas Sets Sights on Canton

From The Canton Repository:
The city is finalizing negotiations with GE Oil & Gas on plans to construct a 24,000-square-foot facility at the Mills Business Park.
The industrial service center would serve as a regional hub for all of GE’s Marcellus and Utica shale operations, according to Fonda Williams, the city’s development director.
The business park is at Faircrest Street and Sherman Church Avenue SW.
The estimated $4.87 million project would create 30 full-time jobs, according to city records. The jobs would be created within four years with an initial payroll of $1.05 million before increasing to $2.1 million, Williams wrote in a letter to City Council, which will be asked to approve economic development incentives for the project.
