Whirlpool Corporation has completed an expansion of its manufacturing facility in La Tablada city, located in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. The development is part of a more than $20 million investment plan, which began last year when the facility started manufacturing ranges. The facility will now also manufacture front load washing machines with Sense Inverter technology. The expansion will result in the addition of approximately 100 new jobs, plus 300 indirect jobs in the area.
“We’re thrilled this significant facility expansion will help us bring the latest innovations to the Argentine market faster, and allow us to hire top talent,” said Armando Valle Jr., Vice President of Whirlpool Latin America. “We’re also proud to be part of a milestone in Whirlpool Corporation history, adding Argentina to the company’s roster of facilities that already includes 70 manufacturing and technology research centers around the world.”
This facility represents the completion of a two-year project to allow the company to bring its global platform and new innovation to the market, and to customize those innovations to meet the needs of consumers in this region.
Whirlpool Latin America has offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Guatemala, Ecuador, Colombia, Miami and Puerto Rico, and reaches 47 countries through official distributors. The company presents a complete portfolio of products including refrigerators, freezers, wine cellars, microwaves, stoves, ovens, hoods, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers.
