GREENVILLE – Even though they have had numerous expansions since 1996, Whirlpool isn’t through growing its plant in Greenville. Ken Hossler, Plant Lead of Whirlpool’s Ohio Factory Distribution Center (FDC), announced on Aug. 22 the company will once again invest in its Greenville plant.

Located across the street from the Whirlpool KitchenAid Manufacturing Center on KitchenAid Way, the FDC serves as Whirlpool’s Ohio distribution center to locations across the globe. The current facility was built in 2008 and is 327,000 square feet. By next April the size will nearly double with an additional 325,000 square feet. Whirlpool will invest $40 million in its Greenville location as part of its goal to invest $80 million in facilities expansions across Ohio.

Hossler explained the FDC currently operates three off-site warehouses and also uses space in the factory as a warehouse. This addition will allow the company to consolidate its facilities. “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 Hossler. “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.

Kelly Szatkowski, distribution manager, said to those that work in the overflow buildings, “We finally made it. It’s very exciting that we’re going to break ground and we’re going to get the expansion that we’ve been looking forward to. Because you all know what it’s like to move 20 trailers to another building to move them back tomorrow to move them again to ship them next week.”.....
