CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Appliance maker Electrolux plans to create more than 800 additional jobs over the next four years as it expands its North American headquarters in North Carolina with a new facility for marketing, research and development and other company operations.
 
Gov. Pat McCrory and Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker made the announcement Friday with Electrolux executives in Charlotte. McCrory's office says the company plans to invest $85 million in Mecklenburg County and create jobs by the end of 2017 with average annual compensation of about $100,000.
 
The company could receive more than $27 million in cash grants over 12 years if they meet investment and job creation requirements.
 
About half of the Swedish company's nearly 1,500 North Carolina employees work at the headquarters, which came to Charlotte in 2010.
