GE Appliances, a Haier company, announces that a significant portion of the products it makes over the next two weeks at its nine manufacturing sites in the United States will be donated to American heroes working across the country on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. “These men and women are working around the clock to keep us safe. We’re relying on them, and they are relying on us and the products we make to keep their families safe and fed,” said Kevin Nolan, president & CEO of GE Appliances, a Haier company. “Appliances are essential right now to help keep food and medicine safe, laundry and dishes sanitized, and food prepared for families. Our country needs us now more than ever before and it’s essential that we take care of our fellow Americans, especially those who are taking care of us.” First responders and healthcare workers The company is creating a program with United Way Worldwide for the donation of thousands of appliances to healthcare workers, firefighters, paramedics and police officers. The donations to individual first responders and healthcare workers will be needs based and coordinated by United Way Worldwide. Donations of appliances to organizations such as firehouses, police stations and hospitals will also be considered. We are proud of our long partnership with GE Appliances and to work alongside the company" “United Way is grateful to GE Appliances for stepping up and stepping in to provide relief to those heroes working on the front lines to keep all of us safe,” said Suzanne McCormick, U.S. President of United Way Worldwide. “We are proud of our long partnership with GE Appliances and to work alongside the company to support first responders during these uncertain times is an honor.” Making product donations GE Appliances is part of United Way’s flagship Global Corporate Leadership program and has been a long-time supporter of Metro United Way in Louisville and the United Way network. “We’ve already been making product donations like this in our hometown, such as one to Okolona Fire Department. We’ve provided N95 masks to University of Louisville Hospital, and we’re using our 3-D printing operations and FirstBuild, our microfactory tied to the maker community, to manufacture face shields,” said Nolan. “From our recent conversations with front-line first responders, we know there is a real and immediate national need for appliances. We appreciate this partnership with United Way to meet this need now, and we will continue to look for ways our company can be helpful in the days and weeks to come.”
Today, GE Appliances, a Haier company, opened the first new logistics center in northwest Georgia near the Appalachian Regional Port, adding momentum to the expansion of the Port of Savannah and its Georgia ports. The new center, referred to as the Southern Logistics Center, accelerates GE Appliances’ supply chain, enabling the company to provide materials and components to its U.S. manufacturing plants. GE Appliances (GEA) builds more than 2,300 appliances per hour in nine U.S. plants, which requires the purchase, storage and distribution of more than two billion parts and components. With the opening of the $32 million Southern Logistics Center, the fulfillment of those parts became easier. More efficient supply chain The 504,000 square foot center is the largest investment and first fulfillment and distribution warehouse at the Appalachian Regional Port (ARP), located in Murray County, an inland extension of the Port of Savannah. “The Southern Logistics Center is integral to GE Appliances’ future because it will reduce lead time on components and enable a more efficient supply chain,” said Bill Good, vice president of supply chain for GE Appliances. “This will help ensure that our manufacturing plants have the materials they need to serve our customers without delay. The support from the State of Georgia, the Georgia Ports Authority and Murray County helped make the Southern Logistics Center a reality.” Materials transportation efficiency The Southern Logistics Center will improve GEA’s inbound parts and materials transportation efficiency by 30% “We appreciate GE Appliances investing $32 million for the Southern Logistics Center and supporting the further economic development of Murray County and the State of Georgia,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “Their strategic view of fulfillment has led to the creation of 100 new jobs in our community. We look forward to our continued partnership.” The Southern Logistics Center will improve GEA’s inbound parts and materials transportation efficiency by 30% and eliminate more than three million long-haul trucking miles. The center is a strategic link for the supply chain, allowing GEA to serve customers better. Warehouse management processes It also represents another step forward in the journey to become the pioneer appliances company in the U.S., backed by GEA’s unprecedented investments of more than half a billion dollars in the entire product supply chain, including $130 million in Georgia over the past year. Comprehensive Logistics Co., Inc. (CLI), a third-party logistics company, operates the Southern Logistics Center under an agreement with and on behalf of GE Appliances. CLI is an innovator of material flow visibility technologies and warehouse management processes. More than 50 people are currently employed at the state-of-the-art facility, with the number expected to grow to 100 within a year.
