GE Aviation, promising to employ 300 to 400 people ultimately, broke ground Monday on a 300,000-square-foot plant in nearby Auburn, Ala. “We’ll probably hire 50 (or fewer) in 2012 and we’ll just gradually increase each year from there. Our goal is when we get toward the end of the decade to be around 300 or 400 people,” said GE Aviation spokesman Rick Kennedy.
