New Zealand-based appliance manufacturer Fisher & Paykel (F&P) said the workforce at its washing machine factory in Clyde, Ohio, U.S may rise to 115 by the end of 2006.

Kevin Pullar, F&P human resources manager, says the current workforce of 35 could grow to three to four times as many jobs if sales take off.

The factory began producing washing machines 3 weeks ago, but executives said they were considering adding 2,787 square m to the plant to produce clothes dryers and electric appliance motors for Whirlpool Corporation.

F&P has a distribution deal with Whirlpool to supply it with components and distribute its products in New Zealand, as Whirlpool distributes F&P products in the U.S.

The U.S. $31 million project included adding on to a 6,967-square-m factory and dismantling a plant in Queensland and moving it to Clyde in 4 months. (Stuff.co.nz)
