SPRINGDALE, OH-GE Aviation, which occupies about 650,000 sf of office in the city, has less than two years on its leases in various buildings. The GE subsidiary, which has more than 1,500 employees in the area, is being courted by communities and developers just in case a move is made.

A GE Aviation spokesman tells GlobeSt.com that his company is open to any offers. “We’re not actively looking to leave where we’re at, but people have approached us. We’ve been in these facilities for 20 years, so we’re not in a hurry. It could take us 18 months to decide,” he says.

The company is ensconced in 650,000 sf in five buildings on Merchant Street, including 400,000 sf in Executive Centre One and Three, says Jeff Tulloch, development director for Springdale. He says the city would offer incentives to keep the company in town. “They’ve been a good, long-term corporate citizen,” Tulloch says.
