GE Makes it Official, Leaving Fort Edward

FORT EDWARD - Today, GE Energy Management confirmed what most people already knew.

The company is closing it's Fort Edward plant and move operations to Clearwater, Florida.

In a statement, GE officials said, "The Fort Edward site has been losing money for several years and it has been difficult to win orders in an extremely challenging marketplace.  To be competitive, GE Energy Management must reduce its costs."

Claire Murphy, executive director of the Washington County Economic Opportunity Council says her office is already preparing to assist GE workers with finding new jobs.  She suggests they make a list of their education and training, all their skills, and then come in to discuss what else they may need to be attractive to other employers.

"We are prepared through our employment in training division to offer employment, re-employment services, job skills training, and resume development."

"People can build the skills they need to be able to leave and go to another job and not necessarily have to wait."

GE says the closure will not happen before September.
