LG Electronics USA has opened a new, state-of-the-art Class A distribution center in East Windsor Township in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday.
The new, 410,300-square-foot center is expected to create 50 new local jobs.
The facility is located directly across from Conair Corp. and just off the recently relocated and expanded New Jersey Turnpike East Windsor Interchange 8.
Paul Heffernan, vice president of Supply Chain at LG Electronics USA, said that the Korea-based electronics giant was attracted to East Windsor because of its location between New York City and Philadelphia.
“Township officials are very cooperative and responsive to the needs of the business community,” said Heffenan in a written statement. “In East Windsor, we have a great facility in a great location, centrally located between New York and Philly. There is a terrific workforce here and excellent transportation access, too. LG is looking forward to being a good neighbor and good corporate citizen in the home of our new facility, East Windsor Township.”
From this new center, LG will deliver its refrigerators, dishwashers, ranges, washers and dryers to dealers. LG said the new facility will allow LG to be more responsive to its East Coast customers and support the growth of LG home appliances in the region.
“East Windsor is excited to welcome global giant LG Electronics, and the size and scope of this modern Class A facility marks a significant investment and exhibits strong confidence in the attractiveness and economic vitality of East Windsor for business,” said East Windsor Mayor Janice Mironov. “This project will generate substantial local tax dollars and new jobs for our area, as well as new patrons for our many stores and restaurants.”
