Whirlpool Corporation

History in the Making.

Whirlpool Corporation is an American manufacturer of a wide variety of home appliances, with facilities in the U.S. and abroad. Apart from its namesake flagship brand, the Fortune 500 company manufactures products under a range of other household brands, including Maytag, KitchenAid, and Amana.

Major Manufacturing Investment


The new Cleveland facility lies just seven miles away from its 100-year-old predecessor. The customer manufactures premium cooking appliances including ranges, cooktops, and wall ovens, at the advanced production plant.


The complex was completed in three consecutive phases over the course of three years and totals more than 1.5 million s.f. Phase I included more than 1 million s.f. of manufacturing space, phase II added a large distribution area, and phase III added lab space.


At the time of the project’s completion, the manufacturing facility stood as the largest in North America at more than 1.5 million s.f. seated on a 121-acre site. Additionally, the plant features some of the most energy efficient and technologically advanced manufacturing processes available. All three phases of the project achieved LEED® certification, with phases I and II certified Gold.
