Electrolux is expanding its investment in its Springfield, Tennessee, manufacturing facility. The $20 million capital investment follows a $25 million investment announced last year.
The company said the investment will increase efficiency and simplify its manufacturing operations. Construction will begin this summer.
“Our Springfield facility has long been an important part of our company’s overall success,” said Mike Longe, Electrolux Springfield plant manager. “This investment will help ensure that we remain a strong Springfield employer and a competitive appliance manufacturer.”
To celebrate the investment, Electrolux is helping fight hunger in the Springfield and Clarksville communities. Electrolux donated a truckload of more than 40 commercial-grade kitchen appliances to the Robertson County and Clarksville region United Way agencies for distribution and use in local soup kitchens, pantries, schools and other organizations serving food to families in need.
The donation, valued at nearly $200,000, includes chest freezers, refrigerators, milk coolers and more. Electrolux also provided more than 6,600 backpacks full of food, valued at $20,000, to TN Kids Nutrition for distribution to local children.
