The 830,000-square-foot plant will be situated on a 310-acre parcel of land that allows for future expansion, and will employ 600.
Ground is slated to be broken soon, and, according to William Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics North America, the facility should be up and running in the first half of 2019, producing both front-load and top-load washers.
The factory will include a seamless, end-to-end assembly line, sub assembly and fabrication, all under one roof, Dan Song, president of the LG Home Appliance and Air Solutions Company, said in making the announcement.
The Korean tire manufacturer Hankook also recently invested in a Clarksville plant, and Google has also recently set up a data center there.
The LG plant deal was six years in the making, and LG selected this Tennessee location from among eight states that presented their cases for the company’s consideration.
