No doubt you’ve heard of Whirlpool, as they’ve always been known as “the washing machine company”. The reason for that reputation lies in their roots. In 1908, Lou Upton thought he could electrify the hand-operated washing machine that was typical of the time. It wasn’t until after the war, in the 1950’s, that Whirlpool was officially established.
Emulating Lou Upton’s creativity and ambition, Whirlpool has grown by exploring the latest technology. Constantly improving their laundry appliances, they’ve also expanded into the rest of the kitchen, offering cooking appliances, ventilation solutions, refrigeration, and dishwashers.
Fun Fact: Whirlpool, under contract from NASA, developed freeze-dried ice cream for the Apollo missions!
