GE Canada and StandardAero are partnering to build a $50 million aircraft engine research and technology development facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Market News Publishing reports. The facility will open with 10 employees. The work force could grow to 50 employees in five years, and eventually up to 200.

"GE continues to invest and grow our presence in Canada," said Elyse Allan, president and CEO of GE Canada. "The new test facility will expand our capabilities and industrial footprint in the country."

StandardAero will operate the facility, to be located on land leased by the Winnipeg Airport Authority.
