*UPDATED* Wednesday: Secretary Geithner to Visit Siemens Energy Plant in North Carolina and Meet with Local Business Leaders

 
Following State of the Union Address, Visit to Highlight the President’s Efforts to Create Jobs
 
WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, January 25, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner will tour Siemens Charlotte Energy Hub in North Carolina to highlight the importance of investing in manufacturing and innovative technologies to create jobs and build a stronger American economy.  He will also meet with local business leaders at the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce to discuss the state of the economy and the President’s efforts to create jobs, including policies to strengthen the ability of U.S. companies and businesses to compete abroad.
 
Siemens Energy has invested more than $350 million in Charlotte in the last four years - an investment that will create more than 1,000 jobs, many of them highly-skilled, at the facility in the next three years, bringing the total number of employees to more than 1,800.  The company’s Charlotte plant recently underwent a $130 million expansion to strengthen its export capabilities.
