Brand StoryThe Company was found at the beginning of the 20th century by Louis Upton and Emory Upton. It was first known as a producer of manual washers. Soon after its incorporation, the company became a pioneer in producing unique semi-electronic washers. The first electric motor-driven wringer washer produced by Whirlpool became a prototype of modern washing machines.
The company became popular, attracting the attention of big commercial clients like the Federal Electronic Division of Commonwealth and Sears, Roebook & Co. In 1947 the company presented its first spinner-type washer that became widely used by businesses and individuals.
The modern name ‘Whirlpool’ was first used in 1948. Today the company is known as one of the largest manufacturers of washing machines and other electronic goods and has over 92 000 employees.
