    GE shifting Rochester, N.Y., jobs to China

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. — General Electric Co. will close its manufacturing facility in Rochester next year, and the work will be moved to China.

    GE announced Tuesday that its plant in the Rochester Science Park will close by June.

    The Boston-based company did not say how many people work at the facility, but GE officials say fewer than 100 employees will be affected.


    The Rochester plant assembles electronic boards. GE said the work will be done in China by a GE partner supplier, St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Jabil.

    Company officials said that workers who lose their jobs will receive severance pay and tuition reimbursement.
