Whirlpool Restructures in Europe
2017/06/23
With the Brexit process now underway, Whirlpool is restructuring operations at its facility in Yate, United Kingdom in order to manufacture dryers for customers in the United Kingdom.
 
The move is part of a broad reorganization of Whirlpool’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa dryer manufacturing operations. Besides changing the operations at Yate to enable the company to manufacture solely for the United Kingodm, Whirlpool will also cease production of dryers in Amiens, France. The company will now be producing dryers for non-UK consumers at a plant in Lodz, Poland. The company said 500 jobs will be affected, but has not indicated whether or not jobs would be eliminated, and Whirlpool expects these moves to be completed in 2018.
 
Whirlpool Chief Executive Jeff Fettig said the company would be monitoring Britain’s exit from the European Union and intends to take swift actions when necessary.
