CLARKSVILLE, TN–The LG Electronics home appliance manufacturing plant here has produced its 1 millionth washing machine.

This milestone is a tribute to the hundreds of men and women producing LG’s award-winning washers in the United States, according to LG Electronics North America CEO Thomas Yoon.

“In addition to commemorating LG’s top-rated washing machines for American consumers, this milestone highlights LG’s proud role as a strong contributor to the local economy and leading employer in America,” says Yoon.

The millionth washer – a new ENERGY STAR certified front-load model with smart features – rolled off the production line at the $360 million factory, believed to be the world’s most advanced, integrated washing machine production plant. Yoon says the million-square-foot plant has increased the company’s competitiveness in the United States by increasing speed to market and responsiveness to changing market conditions. Since constructing the factory, the company has been ramping up production of LG’s award-winning washing machines.
