GE Plant Reopens

Almost two years after GE Healthcare Surgery closed a Salt Lake City plant because of quality issues, the firm has reopened the plant, the New York Times reports. FDA gave the OK yesterday after GE demonstrated that it had made "refinements" to its quality management system. GE voluntarily closed the plant in August 2006 and entered into a consent decree with FDA in January 2007, barring it from shipping X-ray equipment from that plant until the problems were solved.

GE Plant Reopens

What was amazing about the closure was that it happened because of basic QSR violations that one would have thought a large, experienced firm would have known to avoid.The production lines are already up and running, and product could be shipped out in as soon as 10 days. The closure had a significant impact on the bottom line of GE's healthcare division.
