Samsung Electronics Home Appliances America Celebrates 5 years in South Carolina
Samsung Electronics Home Appliances America (SEHA) today celebrates its fifth anniversary in Newberry County, South Carolina. SEHA hosted a special event Tuesday to mark the milestone occasion including special guests Governor Henry McMaster, Congressman Jeff Duncan and Mark Lippert, Executive Vice President, Head of Public Affairs, Samsung Electronics America.
“We are so proud of this incredible milestone for SEHA,” said Thomas Komaromi, General Counsel at SEHA. “Ever since we celebrated the opening of our facility 5-years ago, we’ve been committed to Newberry County and South Carolina as a whole. We couldn’t be prouder of the SEHA team and are incredibly grateful for the support of the local community.”
Since Samsung first set plans in motion to build a state of the art home appliance factory at this remarkable location in 2017, the Newberry facility became the company’s first U.S.-based home appliance manufacturing facility. It’s an essential part of the local economy generating nearly $500 million in capital investment for the region, produced over 4 million washing machines and now directly supports over 1,500 jobs for local residents as part of its ongoing operations.
