Centennial Celebration of GE’s Bushing Factory in Italy in presence of the founders’ family.

Celebrating a Century of Innovation at GE’s Bushing Factory in Italy

On May 12, 2023, GE’s bushing factory known as Passoni & Villa celebrated 100 years of innovation! For more than a century, the factory has been recognized for its excellence, quality, and its team’s expertise in high voltage equipment. The bushings manufactured onsite support AC and DC transformers, substations, and generator applications worldwide, having equipped DC projects such as the Italy-Montenegro Link, the DolWin 3 project in North Europe, and the Lower Churchill Project in Canada.

The celebration took place in the presence of Roberto Di Stefano, mayor of Sesto San Giovanni and Catherine Renard, GE Power Transmission Business Region Leader, to name a few. More than 200 customers, suppliers, and stakeholders, as well as site employees, had the opportunity to visit the facility and meet with Grid Solutions experts.

This Grid Solutions factory isn’t the only Italian site to be celebrating a milestone. The GE air-insulated switchgear factory located in Noventa di Piave recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. These historic achievements are two remarkable examples of continuity in operations based on dynamic engineering and manufacturing experience, supporting our customers in the energy transition.

We want to thank our employees, customers, and suppliers for their attendance and for contributing to our success.
