Symbol of Quality...[[IMAGE]]
and Leadership
in gas and electric home appliances

Whirlpool Corporation has grown from a manufacturer of only home laundry equipment to the world's foremost manufacturer of a complete home appliance line... both gas and electric. This growth is the direct result of a vigorous effort to provide American households with the best and most meaningful advancements. 

To insure continuity of such advancements, Whirlpool employs over 1,000 people in its research and engineering laboratories alone. Out of these laboratories have already come such developments as the first gas and electric refrigerators which prevent the formation of frost in the food compartments, the first remote control room air conditioners, a gas range surface unit so precisely controlled that you can fry an egg in a paper plate, and an automatic clothes dryer that measures the moisture in the clothes and tempers the heat accordingly. 

In Whirlpool's six plants and administrative facilities nearly 14,000 employees are working to produce and distribute a full-line of home appliances that measure up to the highest standard of quality- that of the American homemaker.
