Tuesday, BSH Home Appliances in New Bern opened their newly expanded facility.
They are also marking a milestone of manufacturing their 10 millionth dishwasher in the New Bern area.
The plant has been around for decades, and it is the largest location in North America.
They presented 10 dishwashers Tuesday to the Habitat for Humanity.
“Being part here of the New Bern community, we always try to give back,” president and CEO Christofer Von Nagel said. It is about being part of the good and the bad. When we had the terrible hurricane, which hit the city a couple of months ago, we try to help the best way we could and it is just a symbol from us saying thank you.”
The plant currently provides about 1,400 jobs.
It is likely there will be more job opportunities with the new expansion.
