Electrolux pumps extra $30m into Anderson facility

Electrolux is making a $30 million investment in its Anderson, South Carolina manufacturing facility, where it produces top-mount and under-the-counter refrigerators.

The money will go toward increasing the 810,000-sq.-ft. plant's manufacturing capacity. Electrolux had previously invested an additional $30 million in the facility in order to add a Refrigeration Research and Development Center.

"Our primary focus at Electrolux is on the development of new innovation, based on consumer insight, that delivers high-quality products our consumers depend on," said Jack Truong, president and CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America. "We make award-winning products at this plant and our investment will drive future growth while also positively impacting our local base of employees and the South Carolina communities in which we live and work."

The plant, which sits on 225 acres, employes 1,900 full-time and contract employees and produces one out of every two top-freezer refrigerators shipped in North America, according to the company.
