Electrolux is expanding in Charlotte, North Carolina, investing $14 million in its North American headquarters and creating 200 jobs in the next four years. The One North Carolina Fund and the state's Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) assisted the company.
"We are thrilled to bring another 200 jobs to Charlotte, adding to our significant announcement in 2009 to consolidate our operations in North America here," said Kevin Scott, president and CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America. "As we said just last year when we opened our doors here in Charlotte, `Charlotte's got a Lot,' and North Carolina is gaining more Electrolux employees as a result."
The One North Carolina Fund awarded Electrolux a $325,000 grant. The JDIG could yield a maximum $6.9 million in benefits for the company towards its job creation. Additionally, the state Industrial Development Fund is considering extending $2.3 million for infrastructure improvements.
Electrolux is based in Stockholm, Sweden, and produces home and professional appliances.
