Electrolux will invest $30 million during the next two years in its Anderson refrigerator-making plant to aid advanced capability and capacity.
The 1,900-employee plant makes top-freezer refrigerators and under-the-counter models. The company, with North American headquarters in Charlotte, made no mention of any new employees as a result of the investment.
The new money is in addition to the more than $30 million the company has invested in the 810,000-square-foot facility since 2011, which included a refrigeration research and development center.
The home-appliance plant produces one out of every two top-freezer refrigerators shipped in North America.
Electrolux's brands include Electrolux, AEG, Zanussi, Frigidaire and Electrolux Grand Cuisine. The Electrolux Group sells more than 50 million products every year.
"Our investment will drive future growth while also positively impacting our local base of employees," said Jack Truong, president and CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America.
