GE Appliances has earmarked $34 million to expand refrigeration manufacturing and create 150 new jobs at its wholly owned subsidiary, Monogram Refrigeration (MRO), located in Selmer, Tenn.

The capital infusion will double the size of the factory and add new fabrication equipment and an assembly line to build Monogram and Café branded bottom-freezer refrigerators. Specifically, the expansion will double the available capacity in the plant’s Building Two, while the newly created jobs will make MRO the largest industrial employer in the county. 

GE said the increased facility space and additional refrigeration assembly line will support the continued growth of its premium appliance brands. Construction will begin immediately, and the company expects to switch on the new production in the third quarter of 2025.

“We are excited to grow our team and create great new job opportunities in McNairy County and West Tennessee,” said MRO President and Plant Manager Anne Rushing.

This latest upgrade follows a series of investments in Monogram Refrigeration, including $9.3 million in 2018 to add two production lines and added warehousing space, along with the production of column-style refrigerators and freezers. The Selmer plant was also the site of the first successfully completed pilot of an autonomous, heavy-duty electric vehicle on public roads, which moved finished goods from the factory to a nearby warehouse.

The Selmer plant presently produces a range of column-style and fully integrated bottom-freezer refrigerators in both French and single-door configurations across the Monogram and Café brands.
