Electrolux opened a new fabric care research and development center in Charlotte, NC.

“Investing in this fabric care R&D center allows us to develop washer and dryer technologies that improve the everyday lives of our consumers, while also bringing technology jobs and capabilities to the region," said Jack Truong, president and CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America.

Product innovations showcased at the opening event included a Fast Cycle Speed for washing machines. Electrolux estimated the average industry cycle time to be 57 minutes. However, the company is developing a combination of motion technology, which moves the clothes within the tub, while recirculation technology distributes soap and water quickly and thoroughly, to cut wash time down to as low as 15 minutes.

The company also highlighted capacity technology—vibration and motion technology to precisely control the tub’s movement and allow for maximum expansion of the tub within the exterior walls.

The company also highlighted is rinse mechanism, which bypasses the soap dispenser and thereby reduced the residual detergent to 0.05%. The rinse system also allows steam to move from the bottom of the tub up through the clothes, which is designed to be a more effective stain-removal method.

The R&D center brings 60 research and development roles to the area, growing the company’s local employment to more than 925.
