«This is an important day for Whirlpool Corporation and another example of our ongoing commitment to American manufacturing – commented Jim Keppler, vice president of the company’s Integrated Supply Chain and Quality organization. – It represents not only an investment in the men and women of the Findlay plant, but also in the many others who assemble appliances at our eight additional U.S. manufacturing plants. We are proud to employ more U.S. appliance manufacturing employees than any other U.S.-based appliance manufacturer, and this investment is consistent with our leadership position in the industry.»
