Bangor, ME — Today, U.S. Senator Susan Collins delivered remarks at GE Power’s 50th Anniversary Celebration.  The event consisted of a golden ribbon cutting with the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce and a Family Day for employees with outdoor activities and food.


“As this facility has grown, so has its global reputation for innovation and problem solving.  That reputation is earned every day by the nearly 400 employees at GE Power.  Your ingenuity and dedication have made this plant one of Bangor’s most significant employers.  You have embraced GE’s company-wide ethic of philanthropy and service to others, and you contribute to this community in countless ways,” Senator Collins continued.  “Congratulations on reaching this tremendous milestone!”


To celebrate this golden anniversary, Senator Collins submitted a statement to the Congressional Record honoring GE Power and its employees.  During the ceremony, Senator Collins presented a copy of this statement.


Established in 1969, GE Power produced components for steam and gas turbines that powered 7,000 homes.  Today, 50 years later, GE Power’s nearly 400 employees manufacture equipment that powers more than one million homes.
