Family and friends tour GE Appliance Park

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Thousands of people attended an open house at GE's Appliance Park.

It has been nine years since Appliance Park's 50th anniversary, and Sunday the park employees had the opportunity to show off where they spend their work day to family and friends.

Visitors took a tour of the new GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater and bottom freezer refrigeration manufacturing operations.

GE employee Todd Cook said, "It's really exciting, we call it the revitalization of American manufacturing. We are learning how to do this process all over again. Taking raw materials and making a great product for people."

The new GeoSpring Hybrid Water Heater and bottom freezer products and manufacturing operations are part of the $800 million investment GE will be making at the appliance park by 2012. These operations have created over 1,000 jobs.
