GE Transportation inaugurates locomotive repair shop in Twin Cities

GE Transportation recently assumed control of a repair shop operated by fellow General Electric Co. subsidiary GE Energy and opened the GE Minneapolis Electronics Manufacturing & Repair Shop.

GE Transportation plans to use the shop to perform repairs on locomotives — including those manufactured by General Motors Corp.'s Electro-Motive Division — for Class I and short line clients.

The company expects to use the shop to offer basic and heavy repair and return service, and a heavy repair unit exchange service to enable customers to obtain a replacement part instead of waiting for a unit to be returned. Shop services also include customized repairs, on-site inventory, technical support and online training.
