Workforce drives Whirlpool to grow

Finding the right people has been the top concern for Whirlpool Corp. as it grows in Greenville.

The long-time Darke County employer has just under 1,200 employees and plans to have up to 1,400. It’s hiring 25 to 40 new people a quarter as the capacity and production of its KitchenAid stand mixer and kitchen appliance operation, said Ken Hossler, plant leader for Whirlpool Corp.

The city and county governments have worked with the company, which recruits from Indiana to Dayton for people to work in the growing plant, which announced Monday a $17 million expansion that will double the size of its global distribution center.

“It’s a long-term strategy,” said Darke County Commissioner Mike Stegall. “We’ve worked together a very long time.”

Mitch Heaton, project manager for Dayton Development Coalition, which has helped link the company to JobsOhio, said the project has been in the works for several years, with workforce being a key driver.

“They have been happy with the workforce and with the help they have been getting with the city, state and county,” Heaton said. “Everyone is involved with the workforce strategy.”
