GE expands Tennessee factory

GE Appliances, a Haier company, announced the start of two new production lines at its Monogram Refrigeration, LLC facility in Selmer, Tenn. The move marks an investment of about $9.3 million

The 120,000-square-foot facility expansion was made possible through a partnership between Monogram, the State, McNairy County, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Delta Regional Authority. Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam expressed his thanks to the company during an announcement ceremony.

The expansion houses the manufacturing of Zoneline packaged terminal air conditioners (PTAC), along with new column-style Monogram brand refrigerator and freezer products.

Employment at the facility has doubled as 210 new jobs were created as part of the facility expansion, bringing its employment to about 400.
