Living Large & Making Company History.

Siemens Energy, Inc. and Gray have a history that dates back more than 20 years. The companies partnered on a milestone project to build a gas turbine manufacturing facility, which at the time was Siemens’ largest project, and the largest project in Charlotte for three decades.

Complex Efficiency at its Best


This 489,905 s.f. plant and office complex was built on the campus of Siemens’ existing Steam Turbine and Generator Service Center. With this facility, Siemens expanded its existing steam turbine and generator manufacturing site, now producing the world’s most efficient gas turbine.


The facility was designed based on lean manufacturing practices, which means it was built nearly 100,000 s.f. smaller than would have been needed a generation ago. It was also built according to the U.S. LEED green building standards.


This facility had the honor of being highlighted in President Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address as an example of how Siemens helped to lead the charge to bring more manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.
