LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Midea, a leading manufacturer of air conditioners and home appliances, announced it has strengthened its U.S. footprint by breaking ground on a $10 million R&D center in Louisville, Kentucky. The newly built Midea America Research Center (MARC) will provide technical expertise in developing products for the U.S. market.
Established in early 2015, the MARC has quickly outgrown its initial offices and is now scheduled to move into its custom-designed office and lab space by January 2017. The new 30,000-square-foot building will incorporate state-of-the-art lab facilities, testing equipment, and engineering areas, as well as office space for over 60 people. Midea America’s sales and marketing offices remain headquartered in New Jersey.
