Governor issues statement On GE Appliances Sale
Frankfort, KY - The following is a statement from Governor Bevin on General Electric Company's decision to sell GE Appliances to Chinese multinational consumer electronics and home appliances company Haier (Wikipedia):
"The Commonwealth is proud to be the home of GE Appliances headquarters and we are excited by today's announcement! This sale to Haier offers great potential for global scalability and job growth. I applaud Haier's decision to keep GE Appliances headquarters in Louisville in recognition of the strong leadership team and experienced workforce. GE Appliances is a first-class global company and we look forward to working closely with them in the months and years ahead.
"Haier is the number one global seller of appliances. This new partnership puts Kentucky in prime position to compete globally on appliance manufacturing. It is our goal not only to maintain and support the jobs currently at Appliance Park, but also to strengthen and grow the appliance business there. Appliance Park has been an institution in Louisville for decades and has supported tens of thousands of Kentucky families during that time. While there are still many steps that must be taken before this agreement becomes final, we intend to work with the City of Louisville, GE Appliances and Haier to ensure a bright and mutually beneficial future for all involved."
