Why is Samsung making this investment?

Home appliance preferences vary greatly by region and this facility will allow us to more quickly and efficiently adapt to the high demands and regional needs of our largest, fastest growing home appliance market. Placing our engineers, R&D and manufacturing operations closer to U.S. consumers will help us do an even better job of developing and delivering innovative products.

How many people will the plant employ and what kinds of roles will they fill?

The plant will generate 954 direct jobs, including advanced manufacturing positions for craftsmen, operators, engineers and employees in other technical and non-technical roles.

What will the plant produce?

The facility will produce some of Samsung’s most popular and industry-leading home appliances, including washing machines. Ultimately, we envision it serving as the U.S. hub for home appliance manufacturing across the business unit.

Where will those products be sold?

Products made in our South Carolina facility will primarily be sold to consumers in the U.S., which is our fastest growing home appliance market.

When will the facility be operational?

We expect to begin manufacturing in the beginning of 2018 in response to growing U.S. demand.

Why did Samsung choose to locate this plant in Newberry County, South Carolina?

First and foremost, South Carolina is home to a highly-skilled workforce that is well suited to drive our growth. Second, the state has a strong track record of successfully attracting and retaining other global businesses. Third, we have confidence in the strong local government leadership. And finally, we were impressed with the state’s excellent highway infrastructure and port facilities, which we view as major logistical and supply chain advantages.
