In Building 1 at GE’s massive Appliance Park, where topload washing machines have been built for about 60 years, two new assembly lines, costing over $100 million, have begun producing high-efficiency frontload washing machines and dryers. This is the first time GE has produced a frontload washing machine and matching dryer from one of its US plants. The new products will create about 200 more jobs.
