GE Appliances to voluntarily reduce operations to flatten curve of coronavirus

The reduction of operations will affect Appliance Park in Jefferson County. Officials said the last normal operations will be after second shift on Thursday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — GE Appliances says they’re going to do their part to flatten the curve of coronavirus by voluntarily reducing operations.

“We are reducing production at many of our facilities and will focus on critical products our country needs. We provide important products and services to people across this country while Americans are spending more time at home. Americans rely on our products to keep their food and medicine safe, homes clean and to cook meals for their families,” officials said in a statement.

The reduction of operations will affect Appliance Park in Jefferson County. Officials said the last normal operations will be after second shift on Thursday.

On Friday, they will reduce shifts or temporarily suspend operations at the following locations:

  • AP1 – operating 1 washer line and 1 dryer line on day shift
  • AP3 – operating 1 line on day shift
  • AP4 – reduced operations to support ongoing manufacturing
  • AP5 – halting production

These changes will last until April 3.
