The LG Electronics home appliance manufacturing plant in Clarksville recently produced its 1 millionth washing machine.
The milestone is a tribute to the hundreds of men and women who produce LG’s award-winning washers in the United States, according to LG Electronics North America CEO Thomas Yoon.
“In addition to commemorating LG’s top-rated washing machines for American consumers, the milestone highlights LG’s proud role as a strong contributor to the local economy and leading employer in America,” he said.
The millionth washer – a new Energy Star-certified front-load model with smart features – rolled off the production line last week at the $360 million factory, believed to be the world’s most advanced, integrated washing machine production plant. The 1 million-square-foot plant “increased LG’s competitiveness in the U.S., increasing speed to market and responsiveness to changing market conditions,” Yoon said.
Since the factory was built, the company ramped up production of LG’s award-winning washing machines. LG
