Electrolux recently chose Charlotte, N.C., as the location of its new North American headquarters, where it will consolidate a number of its U.S. corporate office operations and support functions.
The consolidation in the new site will begin this summer. The company expects to eventually employ more than 700 people in Charlotte when the move is completed.
"Charlotte is consistently ranked as one of the best cities in which to live and work in the U.S., and it provides great access to road, rail and air transportation," said Kevin Scott, president & CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America. "Charlotte is also a center for business, finance and technology, and the educational and housing resources in the area are outstanding, as are the cultural, recreational and sports activities."
