GE Appliances unveiled the results of a $450 million dollar investment in their Louisville assembly facility Wednesday.
Gov. Andy Beshear, Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg, and others joined GE Appliances CEO Kevin Nolan and his team to celebrate the completion of the new assembly line and new products at Appliance Park, the company’s headquarters in Louisville. Nolan said the investment is the latest example of finding ways to come together to serve customers and the community.
It was noted that since 2016, the company has invested $2 billion in the U.S. with more than $800 million of that being put into Kentucky.
The new dishwasher expansion at GE Appliances positions the appliance manufacturer plant to be “the largest plant of its kind in the U.S.”
Beshear said the unveiling is an example of announcements becoming a reality, bringing more security to Kentucky families as the investments is part of the 4,000 new jobs from GE Appliances since 2016 and a total of 8,000 employed in Kentucky. With GE Appliances contributing more than $7.5 billion to Kentucky’s GDP each year, the governor said the company is leading the way in restoring American manufacturing.
