Monogram Refrigeration, LLC will invest $9.3 million to expand its manufacturing facility in Selmer, TN. The manufacturer of upscale refrigerators, freezers and other refrigeration products will create approximately 210 new jobs in McNairy County.
“The state of Tennessee and McNairy County have been terrific partners. They’ve worked with Monogram over the years as we’ve grown our refrigeration business in Selmer,” said Raymond Deming, vice president, Monogram Refrigeration Operation, LLC. “Now, their continued support will help us bring to Selmer an entirely new product line and create approximately 210 jobs ranging from production associates, skilled trades and professional employees that will take our employment close to 400.”
Monogram is a subsidiary of GE Appliances (GEA), a Haier company, a leading U.S. manufacturer of household appliances. Its manufacturing facility has been located in Selmer since 1986.
With this expansion, Monogram will be adding 120,000 square feet to its existing building in Selmer. In addition to a new line of column-style refrigerators and freezers, Monogram will begin manufacturing packaged terminal air conditioners (PTACs), a line of commercial heating and cooling products sold under the Zoneline® brand. Production of the new refrigeration products will begin later this year and production of the new Zoneline air conditioning units will begin in early 2018.
“In Tennessee, we strive to make our state the perfect location not only for companies to locate new operations, but for existing companies to expand,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “With our ready-to-work workforce and business-friendly climate, existing companies are able to excel in Tennessee. I thank Monogram, one of our most well-known brands, for reinvesting and expanding in Tennessee and for helping us get one step closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Monogram has a long history in Tennessee, and it means a great deal that a company of this magnitude is expanding its operations here and creating even more job opportunities for Tennessee residents,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “This is a fantastic win for Selmer and McNairy County, a Tier 4 Distressed county, and I appreciate Monogram for its continued investment in Tennessee.”
