GE To Invest $32M In Tenn. Plant

SELMER, Tenn. (AP) — A plant in Selmer will receive $32 million in infrastructure improvements as General Electric aims to reduce costs and meet new energy standards.

According to The Jackson Sun, the upgrades at the Monogram Refrigeration LLC plant are designed to enhance refrigeration technology for the wholly owned subsidiary of GE.

The money will be used to redesign the built-in refrigeration line and to produce a new configuration for the high-end market, which will help retain the 166 jobs at the plant.

Plant manager Ray Deming said it's too early to tell if there will be any jobs created.

GE said the improvements are part of a $432 million investment at four U.S.-based refrigeration design and manufacturing centers.
