    Trump effect: Samsung may build U.S. factory

    Trump effect: Samsung may build U.S. factory

    Christopher Matthews 3 hrs ago

    Samsung is considering constructing a U.S. factory to produce home appliances, per Reuters.

    If the plan comes to fruition, Samsung would join Whirlpool as the only major appliance companies that manufacture in the United States.

    A win-win: Companies can grab headlines with news of even considering bringing production to the U.S., and the Trump White House benefits from the ability to take credit. These moves may not add up to significant job growth, but it's hard to beat the PR.

    Samsung Electronics may build U.S. plant for home appliances: source

    Technology News | Thu Feb 2, 2017 | 2:24am EST
    By Se Young Lee | SEOUL

    Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) may build a U.S. plant for its home appliances business, a person familiar with the matter said, the latest global firm to consider a response to criticism about imports from new U.S. President Donald Trump.

    Specifics such as the amount the electronics giant might invest and where the new base could be located have yet to be decided, said the person, declining to be identified due to lack of authorisation to speak publicly on the matter.

    The new U.S. administration has threatened an import tax while Trump has attacked some of the world's biggest companies for manufacturing abroad for U.S. consumers, stoking much alarm and triggering a rash of promises to invest more in the United States.

    Samsung declined to comment on whether it has any specific plans to add production facilities in the U.S. but said it has already made significant investments in the country - including the $17 billion the firm has spent to date for its Austin, Texas chip plant.

    "We continue to evaluate new investment needs in the U.S. that can help us best serve our customers," it said in an email.

    South Korean firms have not been singled out so far, but some have embarked on preemptive moves to ward off criticism. The Hyundai Motor Group said last month it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years.

    LG Electronics Inc (066570.KS) also announced in January that it will decide on whether to build a manufacturing base in the United States within the first half of the year and warned of risks from the Trump administration's trade policies.

    Plants for assembling appliances would not pose a financial burden for the likes of Samsung or LG, said Jay Yoo, an analyst at Korea Investment.

    If a border tax was imposed, investing in plants would be essential if they wanted to remain competitive with rivals such as Whirlpool Corp (WHR.N) that make appliances in the country.

    "Of course costs would rise, but if they don't do that they would get hit with tariffs," Yoo said.

    LG is considering Tennessee as a location for a new home appliances and television plant as part of its deliberations, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters. An LG spokeswoman declined to comment.

    "This is something that has been under consideration for years at LG, but the current political situation is simply accelerating that timeline for a decision," the person said.
