Reinventing our Value
Chain on a Global Scale

Transforming our value chain remains a top business priority as we strive to deliver best-in-class products at a competitive cost and create a sustainable advantage for our company.

We are achieving this through our globally aligned World Class Manufacturing (WCM) Methodology, and continuing to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operations worldwide. We are making significant progress in the integration of product and processes, which is driving a step function improvement in safety, quality and productivity. Our flexible network continues to enable supply chain efficiency, while driving best-in-class delivery to our customers.

Our global manufacturing strategy enables us to speak the same language and utilize common metrics across each of our operating regions. Transformative efforts to modernize our manufacturing operations with improved data visibility, the introduction of smart automation and application of disruptive technologies will further enable speed and efficiency. The efforts to reinvent our value chain position Whirlpool Corporation as difference-makers in the appliance industry and have set us on the path to success for many years to come.
