Pro-growth policies are sparking robust expansion in America’s manufacturing industry in 2018. Factory orders are growing, the economy continues to expand at a strong rate and manufacturers are reporting record-high optimism.
The latest manufacturing expansion story is coming from Tennessee, where GE Appliances announced it is investing $9.3 million to open two new production lines that will support 210 new manufacturing jobs:
GE Appliances, a Haier company, announced the start of two new production lines at its Monogram Refrigeration, LLC facility in Selmer, Tenn.; investing approximately $9.3 million and adding 210 new jobs, to bring the facilities’ employment to about 400.
The 120,000-square-foot facility expansion was made possible through a longstanding partnership between Monogram, the State, McNairy County, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Delta Regional Authority.
“We are grateful to Monogram for its continued investment in Tennessee and for choosing to grow its footprint in our state,” Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said. “Monogram has had operations in our state for more than 30 years, and I appreciate this world-renowned company for its commitment to create more than 200 jobs in Selmer.
The new production lines will manufacture two refrigeration technology products, Monogram Columns and Zoneline packaged terminal air conditioners.
