The production launch for the microfactory was celebrated at CoCREATE Stamford by GE Appliances President and CEO Kevin Nolan, who was joined by leaders in the area's workforce development to mark the occasion. During the celebration, the first appliance rolled off the line.

“Today we deliver on our promise made just ten months ago to invest in Connecticut and bring appliance manufacturing to Stamford,” Nolan said.

“We’re thrilled to be building appliances in the northeast while also providing local students with opportunities to work with us and learn. Manufacturing is our foundation, but our factory is only the start of what’s to come here. We’re energized about the possibilities ahead when CoCREATE Stamford fully opens to the community and look forward to bringing people together to innovate, educate and inspire.”

CoCREATE Stamford is a co-creation destination that was introduced by GE Appliances last fall and is aimed to blend innovation, education, and inspiration in novel ways. The microfactory is the first phase of CoCREATE Stamford that has been completed.

CoCREATE Stamford will provide opportunities for hands-on learning, in addition to modern manufacturing, when it is fully open, and will also feature a collaborative makerspace for the community. Additionally, it will offer one-of-a-kind brand and product experiences for customers who are looking for inspiration in the kitchen and home space.

“CoCREATE Stamford is an innovative model that not only brings economic growth and jobs to our City, but most importantly aligns workforce development and educational opportunities for students interested in the fields of engineering and manufacturing,” said Stamford Mayor Caroline Simmons.

The City of Stamford is thrilled to have GE Appliances in our community, and we are eager to continue being a partner as CoCREATE Stamford moves forward and evolves to reach its fullest potential.”

Since 2016, GE Appliances has invested $2 billion in new goods and technology, expanding its footprint in the United States of America as a manufacturer and distributor in numerous states across the country, with its major facilities being at Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky.
