Electrolux will close refrigerator factory in US
(ELUX) Electrolux will discontinue production of refrigerators at its factory in Greenville, Michigan, in the United States. The factory will continue to operate into 2005.
In October 2003 Electrolux announced that the factory was under evaluation. Careful and in-depth evaluation of proposals from the local community, the state of Michigan and the company’s labor unions has been conducted.
Most of the products currently manufactured in Greenville will move to a new factory to be built in Mexico. The investment in Mexico is expected to be approximately USD 150m over the coming two years.
The Greenville factory has approximately 2,700 employees. The closure of the factory will incur a total cost of approximately SEK 1,200m, the majority of which will be taken as a charge against operating income for the first quarter of 2004. Approximately half of the cost refers to
write-down of assets.
