Our Value Chain

As we pursue our mission of improving life at home for consumers through our products, we also have an opportunity to improve how those products are designed, engineered, manufactured, used and treated at their end-of-life. From the design phase through repair and refurbishment, we are committed to delivering the best-quality products available and supporting our consumers throughout the product life cycle. Innovation, design and a focus on performance excellence set the Whirlpool product portfolio apart. Our products are designed to perform as expected by consumers, while at the same time continuously becoming more efficient and better for the environment. Everything we do is built on a foundation of reliability and quality, keeping homes running smoothly so our consumers can spend time on what matters to them.

The Life Cycle of Our KitchenAid Small Appliances

In 2023, we performed a life cycle analysis for our KitchenAid small appliance products, including the stand mixer, blender and food processor. The KitchenAid results demonstrate how we bring our sustainable management practices to life throughout the product life cycle and product value chain.

KitchenAid products are manufactured at our Greenville, Ohio, site, a facility that generates more than 70% of its electricity needs from renewable sources (wind energy) and is a self-certified Gold ZWtL facility.

The site has improved safety key performance and activity indicators, implementing strong countermeasures and significantly improved ergonomics to help keep employees safe and healthy.
