LG Electronics Set to Break Ground This Week

Published Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Federal, state and local leaders will be on hand in Clarksville Thursday for the groundbreaking on the 600-worker LG washing machine plant.

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker will meet with business and community leaders at a meet and greet hosted by the Robertson County Chamber of Commerce before traveling to Montgomery County to deliver remarks at the groundbreaking.

The 829,000-square-foot LG facility will be the most advanced washing machine factory in the world and will produce front- and top-loading washing machines, according to a news release from Corker's office.

LG considered seven other states during its evaluation process for the $250 million project and worked closely with state officials and the Tennessee Valley Authority in its decision to choose Tennessee, the release said.

In addition to Corker, among those in attendance will be U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe, Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett, Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan, and LG executives.
