suffolk-geGeneral Electric Co. said Friday that Suffolk Construction Co. will manage the construction of a new 12-story building that will anchor the industrial giant’s new headquarters in South Boston.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

GE’s $200 million campus in the Fort Point neighborhood will also include two renovated brick buildings that were once used by New England Confectionery Co. Suffolk will be construction manager only for the new building.

The Suffolk selection comes a day after GE and state agency MassDevelopment completed a deal to acquire the property from Procter & Gamble Co.

Chief executive John Fish is a member of the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership, a powerful business group whose leaders helped recruit GE to Boston in January.
