Electrolux North America announced big news Tuesday.
The company relocated its North American headquarters to Charlotte in July 2010. At the time, it committed to grow its employee base to 738 people within the first five years.
Tuesday, Electrolux announced it surpassed those expectations with 65% growth. In just a little more than two years, the company now has 750 employees. Electrolux says 81% of the workforce is made up of Charlotteans.
"We surpassed our job growth commitment three years early and are continuing to expand," said Jack Truong, president and CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America. "Our most recent employee numbers underscore our commitment to Charlotte and we greatly appreciate the warm welcome and partnership from the state and community."
Electrolux is currently hiring to fill nearly 80 openings at its headquarters. You can find information on available openings here.
