We’re continuing to invest in Ohio due to the skilled and talented workforce here, and are looking forward to this expansion’s role in our continued growth.» Today’s groundbreaking follows Whirlpool Corporation’s 40 million dollar investment in its Greenville, Ohio manufacturing plant – part of a larger 80 million project to expand facilities across Ohio, that the company announced in May.
