Whirlpool's beginnings are
based on a business failure and the vision of one family. In 1908,
Lou Upton invested his savings in a venture to manufacture household
equipment. When that company failed to materialize, Upton was
offered the opportunity to select something of value from the failed
venture as a return on his investment. He chose the patents on a
hand washing machine that he thought might be electrified.
Lou Upton brought the patents and his innovative vision home to St.
Joseph, Michigan. In 1911, Lou joined his uncle Emory and brother
Fred to produce motor-driven wringer washers as the Upton Machine
2006, Whirlpool took the significant step of acquiring Maytag
Corporation, resulting in an aligned organization able to offer
more to consumers in the increasingly competitive global
marketplace. The transaction enabled them to become a more
efficient supplier to trade customers while offering a broader
portfolio of innovative, high-quality branded products and
services to consumers.
Whirlpool's focus on environmental sustainability continued with
an emphasis on consistently offering a full line of energy- and
water-efficient products. In 2003, they became the worlds first
appliance manufacturer to announce a global greenhouse gas
reduction target, a 3 percent reduction from 1998 levels by
2008. They revised the target in 2007, to a goal of 6.6 percent
reduction by 2012. Currently, Whirlpool's operations release of
toxic chemicals in the United States is nearly 90 percent less
than the releases compared to the 1987 baseline year, while at
the same time production increased approximately 80 percent.
Throughout the years, Whirlpool has
built a culture of doing the right thing based on living up to
our commitments to stakeholders and by quietly working behind
the scenes to strengthen the economic and social fabric of the
communities in which they operate. Whirlpool employees live by
the values that have made our company the international leader
that it is today. Whirlpool is delivering strong performance,
providing an outstanding portfolio of brands, and creating
better, more innovative products that improve consumers lives
in and around the home each and every day. Nearly 100 years ago,
the Upton family continually improved their washer; they cared
about their community, their employees and their customers. They
believed that "there is no right way to do a wrong thing."
Whirlpool still believes that today.
