Electrolux Home Products, producer of Frigidaire appliances, and Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse held a celebration Wednesday to commemorate the 7,000,000th dishwasher to come off the production line in Kinston, North Carolina. This unit will also mark an all time annual production record for the Electrolux factory in Kinston.

"Lowe's business represents a major portion of our dishwasher factory production and we have grown our mutual business in terms of volume and product mix over the last five years," said Tom Anderson, field sales director-Lowe's account Electrolux Home Products. "In short, Lowe's has helped us support a workforce of more than 600 employees in Kinston and we are proud to say our world class dishwasher product is made in North Carolina."

"Bringing a product from idea to market happens quickly when working with Electrolux," said Bruce Ballard, Lowe's merchandising vice president of appliances. "We appreciate the quality products manufactured by the employees of this fine company."

"Frigidaire's production record in Kinston is proof that the American worker is still the most productive," added Mr. Ballard. "High production, coupled with high quality, can only be achieved through innovation, technology and cooperation."

Lowe's Companies, Inc. is the second largest appliance retailer in the U.S., selling more major appliances than any other home center. The retailer offers guaranteed 24-hour delivery and its stores stock more than 250 models. An additional 2,500 appliances are available through special order. Lowe's also features a full line of small household appliances. It had 2001 sales of U.S. $22.1 billion.

Frigidaire is Electrolux Group's leading major appliance brand in North America. It was established in 1918 as the world's first brand of electric household refrigerators. Other historical innovations from Frigidaire include the first room air conditioner, food freezer, standard size electric range, and matching color appliances. More recently, Frigidaire was the first to add ice and water filtration systems to its refrigerators and to make the professional stainless steel look in appliance more affordable to customers.
