Whirlpool Corporation Celebrates Its Employees On Manufacturing Day Oct. 1; Cleveland Plant Releases Video Tour

  • Thursday, September 30, 2021

Cleveland's Whirlpool Plant employees video among nine videos Whirlpool Corporation released featuring employees from its local plants in nine different U.S. cities to celebrate Manufacturing Day.

Held annually on the first Friday in October each year, Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) traditionally has shown the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. Live tours are not possible this year, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions at the plants, but Whirlpool Corporation still wanted to honor its existing employees and educate potential new employees about careers in manufacturing.

“I am incredibly  grateful  to our essential manufacturing employees not just in the U.S, but worldwide, who kept working during the pandemic to provide the appliances our customers rely on every single day,” said Whirlpool Corporation VP of Integrated Supply Chain and Quality Don Metzelaar.

“Since we cannot give tours to students and others this year, we decided to create videos for each plant highlighting some of our superstar team members and the great work that they do.”

Local Cleveland Whirlpool Corporation employees highlighted in this Manufacturing Day Video speak about their roles, how they’ve been provided opportunities for educational reimbursement and career advancement, and how they volunteer to make a real difference in the communities where they live and work.

“We are confident  these videos will provide a better understanding of how modern manufacturing jobs at Whirlpool Corporation are high tech, innovative and can provide successful and rewarding careers for our employees,” said Mr. Metzelaar. “The theme is ‘We invest in you,’ which is true of all of our plant operations, and is one of the reasons more than 20,000 U.S. team members are proud to call Whirlpool Corporation their home.”
