Whirlpool increases Slovak production

WHIRLPOOL plans to move production of 150,000 washing machines annually from its new site in Poland to Slovakia, increasing output at its Poprad factory from 1.5 million units a year to 2 million a year and jobs from 600 to 840.

Whirlpool Slovakia this year also moved production of high-standard washing machines from Amiens in France to its Poprad factory. The new move will make the firm the largest home-appliances manufacturer in central and eastern Europe.
