Electrolux Moves Washer, Dryer R&D to NC from Iowa
Appliance maker Electrolux is moving 80 jobs in its division developing better clothes washers and dryers from Iowa to its North American headquarters in North Carolina.
Electrolux said Tuesday that product design and testing will be discontinued at the company's Webster City, Iowa, site in the third quarter of next year. The move will increase its employment in Charlotte to more than 800.
The Sweden-based appliance maker moved its North American headquarters from Georgia to Charlotte in July 2010
