Electrolux to Create 75 Jobs With Springfield, TN, Facility Expansion; Breaks Ground on $200 Million Memphis Plant
The project includes a new three-story, 21,000 sq.-ft. addition with laboratories and developmental facilities. Since 1974 the plant has produced Frigidaire and Electrolux gas-and-electric freestanding ranges.
"This expansion brings with it a new day for the Electrolux Springfield factory," said John Terzo, VP and general manager of cooking products for EMA-NA. "We are excited to add to our Tennessee workforce and know that the upgrades and additions to our facility will continue to add to our success."
The news comes on the heels of last week's groundbreaking for the $200 million Electrolux Home Products manufacturing facility in Memphis, TN. It is expected to create 1,200 jobs and, at full production, manufacture 700,000 ovens annually. The plant secured over $150 million in incentives from the state, the city of Memphis and Shelby County.
