GE has opened a new central logistics centre just 23 miles outside Memphis, Tennessee in Olive Branch, Mississippi. The new facility is expected to help GE enhance its customer response time for North America, especially as more solar and wind projects are developed in the region. GE Energy’s renewable energy services group will use the new logistics centre to distribute replacement wind turbine parts and solar technology components to customers throughout North America.

“GE’s decision to move into the Olive Branch facility and establish a new, expanded, integrated renewables logistics centre advances our goals to provide excellent lifecycle service to our customers throughout North and South America,” said Diarmaid Mulholland, general manager of wind services for GE’s renewable energy business.

In addition to supporting customer response time, GE’s logistics facility will fabricate customer-specific kits, which will include multiple parts for each service activity leading to what GE hopes is increased productivity. The Olive Branch centre also plans to deliver and maintain specialized tooling for GE’s field services team.
