Whirlpool to build on Ohio plant, add 400 jobs


GREENVILLE, Ohio — The Whirlpool Corp., citing strong demand for its mixers and other small kitchen appliances made in Ohio, announced plans Friday to expand its Greenville plant and add 400 jobs.

Greenville is about 35 miles northwest of Dayton.

The plant, which makes KitchenAid brand mixers and other products, already employs 1,000 full-time and part-time workers. The company said it’s putting $40 million into an expansion that will nearly double the size of its operations, with 400 new jobs by 2018.

Whirlpool is based in Michigan and has five plants in Ohio.
