WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) applauded LG Electronics following an announcement that the company will build a $250 million home appliance manufacturing facility near Clarksville, which will create at least 600 full-time jobs beginning in 2019.
“Today’s announcement that LG Electronics will invest $250 million and create 600 full-time jobs is outstanding news for the people of Montgomery County and the surrounding communities,” said Corker. “There is no question that Tennessee is a great place to do business, and I am glad this company will soon call our state home. Time and again, top-notch businesses are choosing Tennessee, and I thank Governor Haslam and his economic development team for their impressive efforts to bring jobs to the Volunteer State.”
The LG facility is expected to be the most advanced washing machine factory in the world and will initially produce front- and top-loading washing machines. LG considered seven other states during its evaluation process and worked closely with state officials and the Tennessee Valley Authority in its decision to choose Tennessee.
