GE Appliances Announces $34 Million Manufacturing Investment in TN

GE Appliances, a Haier company, announced a $34 million investment to expand refrigeration manufacturing and create 150 new jobs at its wholly owned subsidiary, Monogram Refrigeration LLC (MRO), located in Selmer, TN. The investment will increase the size of the plant and add new fabrication equipment and an assembly line to build Monogram and Café brand integrated bottom-freezer refrigerators. The expansion will double the available capacity in Building Two, located at 1020 Tennessee Avenue in Selmer. The newly created jobs will make MRO the largest industrial employer in McNairy County.

"We are excited to grow our team and create great new job opportunities in McNairy County and west Tennessee," said Anne Rushing, President of Monogram Refrigeration, LLC and Plant Manager. "I want to thank McNairy County and the Selmer/McNairy County Industrial Development Board for their strong and sustained support, and the Tennessee Valley Authority and other partners continued cooperation provided over many years. This is the kind of partnership that is a model for progress."

Monogram Refrigeration's growth and high-quality jobs added since 2018, and the resulting impact, have significantly contributed to the growth of McNairy County's economy. The increased facility space and refrigeration assembly line from the investment will support continued growth of GE Appliances' premium appliance brands. Construction will begin immediately, and the new production will begin in the third quarter of 2025.

"The Selmer/McNairy County Industrial Development Board began discussions In August of 2021 with Monogram Refrigeration regarding a possible investment that would expand the production facility to double its size and add 150 jobs," said Robert Shackelford, Chairman of the Selmer/McNairy County Industrial Development Board. "And now, after two years of planning, we are excited to join Monogram Refrigeration and GE Appliances to announce this $34 million investment that will increase the economic impact throughout the region. The Selmer/McNairy County Industrial Development Board is grateful for this opportunity to continue to enhance our partnership with Monogram Refrigeration and GE Appliances."

McNairy County Mayor Larry Smith also expressed his support for the partnership. "Monogram Refrigeration has been a tremendous partner for McNairy County and has supported our communities, families and institutions," said Smith. "In addition to employing hundreds of McNairy County residents, they also actively support workforce development in our community through assistance to public school programs, as well as encouraging employees to further their education using company-paid tuition benefits."
