It’s exciting to watch GE’s Appliance Park growing stronger again – and to support the folks there along the way.
New West helped coordinate today’s big unveiling of two new assembly lines, producing high-efficiency frontload washing machines and dryers. These new lines, costing over $100 million, mark the first time GE has produced a frontload washing machine and matching dryer from one of its U.S. plants. The new products mean about 200 more jobs for Louisville.
These are the last of the new product platforms in GE’s $1 billion investment in GE Appliances, which has created 3,000 jobs at Appliance Park since 2010. Last year GE opened two refurbished factories at the sprawling site to house the first of the new product platforms—the GeoSpring™ Hybrid Water Heater and French door refrigerator. It also added lines in two existing plants for new dishwasher and washing machine models.
