Whirlpool Corporation Expands Facilities In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Metro Area
The new facility will be about 12 miles from the company's current distribution center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. It will provide an additional 300,000 square feet for storage, and will be a full-mix, rail-served warehouse, storing major appliances from all of the company's brands and product categories, including laundry, refrigeration, cooking, and dishwashing.
"This upgrade to our distribution network represents our commitment to our consumers and trade customers," said Alison Jones, Senior Director, Logistics. "We expect that the additional space will improve our flexibility, increase our efficiency, and provide needed space for our growing business."
Exeter Property Group and Penntex Construction Center will develop and construct the property, respectively. Construction will begin immediately, with plans for the new center to become operational in the third-quarter of 2017. Penske Logistics, the Carlisle warehouse's current manager, will continue their duties in New Kingstown. The workforce of 90 is expected to stay the same.
