GE locomotive inverters were made by GE usually at the Glens Falls, NY, facility. No clue what Wabtec is doing these days.

Inverters on EMD and GE AC Locomotives

I understand Mitsubishi built the inverters for the EMD SD70ACE locomotives, does anyone know if GE/Wabtec built/build their own in house for the ES44ACE or are they outsourced as well?
