In August of 2015 Albuquerque Business First reported “GE turns down Rio Rancho relocation proposal“. Now we know that GE had chosen Boston as the location of it’s new headquarters “G.E. Is Moving Headquarters to Boston and Itself Into the Digital Era” according to the New York Times.
Now, in its latest step to remake itself — and its public image — as an industrial company for the digital era, G.E. said it was moving its headquarters from its longtime sprawling suburban home in Fairfield, Conn., to the high-tech environs of Boston.
I would have very much liked to have General Electric headquartered in Rio Rancho. But if I’m thinking of a high tech company, Boston seems like a better location than Rio Rancho.
