Whirlpool: 5 things you might not know


Whirlpool has become a household name, and rightly so. Whirlpool has had a diverse and innovative history in the world of appliance manufacturing. We are all familiar with the name, but here are 5 things you may not know about Whirlpool Corp:

  1. 111 years of experience: Founded by Louis Upton in 1919, the company got its start by converting manual clothes washers and fitting them with motors. This small company grew in size and scope to become the trusted appliance company we know today.
  2. Manufacturing in the U.S.: 80 percent of the products that we sell in the U.S. are manufactured in the U.S. and provides almost 30,000 jobs in manufacturing in America which in turn, strengthens local communities. Among its various facilities, its Cleveland, Tennessee plant was the first of Whirlpool Corp.’s manufacturing facilities to become LEED-certified showing the company’s commitment to sustainability.
  3. Wide range of brands you can trust: Whirlpool Corporation has many brands, each addressing different lifestyles around the globe, providing our consumers the best products and services for what they need to improve their life at home: Whirlpool®, KithenAid®, Maytag®, JennAir®, Amana® are all part of the Whirlpool family of brands.
  4. Dedicated to Innovation: Whirlpool has a staggering 54 manufacturing and research centers across the globe.
  5. Service that is out of this world: In 1962, NASA turned to Whirlpool Corporation to create the world’s first “space kitchen” and “space food” to tackle food and waste management systems for the Apollo, Gemini missions, and Skylab space missions. Fast-forward to 2021, Whirlpool Corp. once again worked with NASA to help develop a zero-gravity refrigerator that will allow for long-term storage on extended missions to space.
