Where Are Electrolux Appliances Made?

The second largest appliance maker in the world is a brand named Electrolux. At its conception, it was created by merging two prior businesses. What began primarily as a vacuum supplier sprouted into a manufacturer of everything from fridges to washing machines, dishwashers, and more. 

Electrolux was founded in 1919 and is based out of Stockholm, Sweden. They are publicly traded and own a number of subsidiary brands, including Frigidaire, Eureka, AEG, and more. In 2014, they purchased GE Appliances for $3.3 billion. There are many brands that operate under the umbrella of Electrolux. This is due to a long history of acquisitions and mergers. 

In 2022, the business made $14 billion in sales and had over 48,000 employees on their roster. Each year, they sell 60 million household appliances. 

Electrolux is Swedish in origin but clearly has a very large global footprint. Where does the manufacturing get done among all these locations?

Verdict: Are Electrolux Appliances Made in the USA?

Only some Electrolux products are assembled in the USA. Electrolux products are manufactured globally, including in the USA, Mexico, Europe, South America, China, Africa, and other locations.

Operations for the company occur around the world, including manufacturing facilities. Here is a map of all of the manufacturing plants owned by Electrolux:


Manufacturing facilities in the US include:

  • Memphis, TN (may be inactive): ovens 
  • Springfield, TN: ovens
  • Anderson, SC: refrigerators and freezers
  • Kinston, NC: dishwashers

In the US alone, Electrolux manufactures out of facilities in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The Kinston, North Carolina factory was opened in 1989, and a few years ago, it celebrated its 30-year anniversary there. This included congratulating 22 employees on their subsequent 30-year careers at the factory. 

In 2020, Electrolux completed a new facility build in Springfield, Tennessee. This move came as a consolidation effort and included closing the Memphis, Tennessee, facility in the same year.

Having acquired the basic product categories from the US factories, listed above, we wanted a bit more detail. So, we contacted Electrolux to ask about their manufacturing practices. Here is the conversation:

So, first, the agent starts off with “everything is made overseas,” then he switches to “Here’s a bunch of stuff made in the US.” And to say that ALL the products in those categories are US-made seems like a stretch. We were already aware of the general products manufactured in the US, but certainly not all the refrigerators, ovens, and dishwashers are American made. Having a bit of skepticism about this agent’s statement, we asked for clarification:

So, the categories we found on Electrolux’s website and the agent’s response match up. However, it doesn’t mean that every product in these categories is definitely made in the USA. To verify, you’ll have to cross-reference with the product’s serial number/information tag, as seen below:

What this information does tell us is that items outside of those categories are unquestioningly made overseas. Electrolux products such as laundry machines, ice makers, beverage centers, and others are not made in America.
