GE Appliances & Lighting, (formally known as GE Consumer & Industrial), is an American manufacturer, headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. GE Appliances & Lighting is a subsidiary of Chinese conglomerate Haier and is one of the largest suppliers of appliances in the world. It was created in January 2004 when GE Consumer Products (founded in 1905) merged with GE Industrial Systems (founded in 1930). From 2010 to late 2014, GE Appliances & Lighting was a sub-business under GE Home & Business Solutions. On 8 September 2014, General Electric agreed to sell GE Appliances & Lighting to the Swedish appliance manufacturer Electrolux for US$3.3 billion in cash. The Electrolux acquisition was the result of General Electrics nearly six-year-long plan to sell the Appliance & Lighting division that included negotiations with Electrolux and other firms, such as Samsung and LG. The deal will combine Electroluxs existing primary U.S. mainstream appliance brand, Frigidaire, with GEs stable of products, including the Monogram line of luxury appliances. As part of the deal, Electrolux agreed to continue using the G.E. Appliances brand names, such as the mainstream "GE" appliance marque, for a limited period, and also agreed to assume General Electrics 48.4% stake in Mabe, a Mexican appliance manufacturer.
Highest paying job titles at GE Appliances include Manufacturing Engineer, Electronics Engineer, and Senior Software Engineer
