CINCINNATI – The General Electric Co. plans to build a new global operations center in the Cincinnati area, adding 1,400 jobs in southwest Ohio.

The announcement was made Thursday by JobsOhio, the state’s private job-creation agency.

Fairfield, Conn.-based GE describes the center as a “shared services” site that’s part of the sprawling company’s efforts to streamline operations.

The company that makes products ranging from aircraft engines to CT-scanners and also offers financial services employs some 307,000 people globally, with annual revenue of $146 billion. GE’s Aviation division is based in the northern Cincinnati suburb of Evendale.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1gce7eC) reports that three locations in Cincinnati or one of its suburbs are considered front-runners for the site. GE expects to break ground this summer and have the site fully running by 2017.

The company announced in March that it will be closing all of its remaining Fort Wayne operations Jan. 15.
