Responding to growing consumer demand for their products, GE Appliances, a Haier company, announced plans to invest more than $200 million to expand its dishwasher and laundry manufacturing facilities in Louisville, Kentucky. The expansion will result in the addition of 400 new jobs.
Specifically, the plan calls for major investments in GE Appliances’ Appliance park facility, the company’s largest manufacturing facility and headquarters located in Louisville.

Additionally, GE Appliances will expand the plant’s dishwasher production capabilities by 35 percent, allowing for the manufacturing of new plastic and stainless steel tub models.
