Whirlpool celebrates the new Ohio Factory Distribution Center

1948

With an investment of 17 million dollar Whirlpool Corporation has completed the expansion of its Greenville, Ohio Factory Distribution Center (FDC), nearly doubling the size (from 327,000 square feet to approximately 650,000 square feet) of the facility which currently services KitchenAid small appliance shipments throughout the world. Currently, Whirlpool has approximately 10,000 workers across its five manufacturing plants in Ohio, many of whom are second and third generation employees. The project builds upon Whirlpool Corporation’s commitment to American manufacturing and reinforces Greenville as the global hub of the company’s small appliances business. «We’re excited to expand to accommodate the growing global demand in the small appliance category – said Ken Hossler, Plant Lead at the Greenville Operations. – Our investment in Greenville further demonstrates our commitment to Ohio’s skilled workforce and reinforces Greenville as the global hub of our small appliance business.»
