Roper Corporation, located in LaFayette, Ga., was recently featured by the Georgia Department of Economic Development in marketing the state's Georgia Made™ program.
More than 50% of U.S. homes boast a GE appliance, many of them made in Georgia, where Roper and GE have a long history.
The Walker County facility has existed since 1973, when Roper Corporation put down roots in the city of Lafayette.
The plant was later purchased by General Electric and today as a subsidiary of GE Appliances, a Haier co., bustles with more than 2,000 production and technology workers who manufacture cooktops, free-standing ranges and wall ovens under the GE®, GE Profile™, Café™ and Monogram® brands.
"Thanks to corporate partners like GE Appliances, we are seeing greater investment and job growth in every part of our state," said Governor Kemp.
