WHIRLPOOL JOBS
(2007-06-07)
(wgvu) - BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Whirlpool Corporation is eliminating
more than 700 jobs at two plants in Tennessee.
The Benton Harbor company announced the moves today.
It said production of dehumidifiers and air purifiers at its
plant in La Vergne, Tennessee, will be phased out after this year.
About 330 jobs will be cut there.
Whirlpool also is relocating production of its freestanding
cooking range units from Cleveland, Tennessee, to plants in Tulsa,
Oklahoma, and Celaya, Mexico.
About 400 jobs will be eliminated at Cleveland. The company says
it's uncertain how many will be added at the Oklahoma and Mexico
plants.
The company also is negotiating a licensing agreement to let
others make and distribute air control products carrying the
Whirlpool name.
