Samsung Home Appliances
When fully operational, the plant will employ workers across a broad range of advanced manufacturing roles, including craftsmen, operators, engineers and other both technical and non-technical positions.
The new manufacturing plant will produce premium home appliances including Samsung washing machines from early next year. Samsung already operates a call center in Greenville, South Carolina, that supports 800 full time and contracted jobs.
South Carolina Governor
"The fact that one of the world’s largest and most respected technology companies is choosing to invest in South Carolina speaks volumes about the innovation and excellence our talented workforce is capable of," said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster. "I’m thrilled to strengthen our state’s partnership with Samsung and look forward to working with them to get this new facility up and running, and producing high quality made-in-South Carolina products."
United States Commerce
"Samsung’s investment is great news for South Carolina and the United States, and it is a direct reflection of the fact that America is becoming an even stronger destination for global businesses looking to grow," said United States Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. "I congratulate Samsung on its expansion in the United States and wish the company success as it starts up its new facility in South Carolina."
Senator from South Carolina
"As a global leader in technology, Samsung Electronics could have gone anywhere to locate its new home appliance facility, but chose to invest in South Carolina because it’s a great place to do business," said Lindsey Graham, US Senator from South Carolina. "Samsung’s new plant will inject millions of dollars into Newberry and serve as a catalyst for further investment across the Palmetto State. I’m excited we are strengthening South Carolina’s collaboration and partnership with Samsung. It will pay dividends for both in the years to come."
Better relation with American consumers
"For nearly forty years, Samsung has steadily expanded our operations in the US - creating thousands of jobs and investing billions of dollars in cutting edge manufacturing facilities, research and development," said Samsung Electronics America President & CEO Tim Baxter. "With this investment, Samsung is reaffirming its commitment to expanding its US operations and deepening our connection to the American consumers, engineers and innovators who are driving global trends in consumer electronics."
Samsung Digital Appliance Business
"Innovation is part of our DNA at Samsung Electronics and few markets have been more crucial to our company’s growth strategy than the US," said Byungsam Suh, Executive Vice President, Head of Digital Appliance Business, Samsung Electronics. "We are excited to put even more US engineering power behind our premium products and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership with the people of South Carolina."
