Is The Economy Improving In The Carolinas?
Do you think the economy is improving in the Carolinas?
Electrolux North America plans to create 200 jobs over the next four years in Charlotte, Gov. Bev Perdue announced on Tuesday.
The company, which is a leader in the manufacturing of home and professional appliances, will consolidate positions from other locations in the U.S. and move them to Charlotte.
"Like other international companies, Electrolux looks around the globe when they prepare to expand," Perdue said. "Sixteen months ago, the company moved its North American headquarters to Charlotte. Once more company leaders have chosen Charlotte and North Carolina to expand their international business, as they continue to believe in the investments North Carolina has made in education, building a workforce that will fill 21st century jobs."
The project was part of a state grant from the Job Development Investment Grant and One North Carolina programs.
Electrolux moved its headquarters to Charlotte in November 2009 and has 8,000 employees across the country, including 1,000 in North Carolina.
Electrolux products include refrigerators, freezers, washers and dryers, vacuum cleaners, dishwashers and cooking products sold primarily under the Electrolux, Frigidaire and Eureka brands in North America.
