If you live in Louisville metro, chances are you have heard of GE Appliances or know one of the more than 8,500 people the appliance manufacturer employs in the area.

For the past 70 years, the manufacturing facility GE Appliance Park, 4000 Buechel Bank Road, has called Louisville home.

The appliance company, which was created by Thomas Edison, has produced many innovative products in Louisville including the first automatic portable dishwasher, bright-colored appliance sets, and the first toaster oven, just to name a few gadgets.

In 1950, General Electric purchased more than 900 acres of farmland in Louisville to create Appliance Park, which would become the company’s centralized hub for production. Just a few years later in 1953, GE Appliances shipped its first product out of Louisville, a dryer.

“For seven decades, Appliance Park has been a pioneer in the home appliance industry,” Kevin Nolan, president and CEO of GE Appliances, a Haier company, told the Courier Journal. “Here in Louisville, GE Appliances invents and builds products that help improve life in the home for families across the country.”
