Whirlpool Expanding KitchenAid’s Ohio DC

Whirlpool Corporation continues expanding its Greenville, Ohio, manufacturing and distribution facility with the ground breaking of a new project that will nearly double the facility.

The project at the factory distribution center, which services global shipments of KitchenAid small appliances, will expand its size from 327,000 square feet to 650,000 square feet and follow the previous expansion of its manufacturing plant at the same location.

“This groundbreaking today is a testament both to the success of our global KitchenAid business as well as our commitment to domestic operations in the U.S. and Ohio,” said Ken Hossler, plant lead at Whirlpool’s Greenville facility. “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.”

The factory distribution center’s expansion— which is scheduled for completion by March 2017— will stand adjacent to the current facility in Greenville.
