Places That Matter
Highlighting People, Plants and Places During Manufacturing Month
Six plant communities will be featured as part of the appliance manufacturer’s Places That Matter photojournalism series
As National Manufacturing Day approaches on October 4, Whirlpool Corporation is marking the occasion with the continuation of its global photojournalism project, “Places That Matter.” The project features a series of videos that chronicle the stories of the communities around the world where Whirlpool Corporation’s appliances are made, and the people that make them. The video series is part of Whirlpool Corporation’s celebration of manufacturing during the month of October that aims to inspire the next generation of manufacturing innovation.
In 2018, the Places That Matter project began profiling Whirlpool Corporation’s manufacturing communities in Europe, Middle East & Africa and North America. This year, the journey continues with videos highlighting four of the company’s plant communities in Ohio – Findlay, Greenville, Marion and Ottawa – and in Amana, Iowa, and Fall River, Massachusetts.
