Appliance maker Whirlpool Corporation announced an expected investment of up to U.S. $11 million for the expansion of its Amana, Iowa, U.S.-based refrigeration operations.

The investment will support product innovation and increased manufacturing capacity for bottom-freezer refrigeration and is expected to create up to 400 new jobs in Amana during the next 24 months.

Whirlpool said it expects to employ approximately 2,900 people at the facility by the end of 2008.

"Investing in our Amana manufacturing facility will allow us to expand production of bottom freezer refrigerator models to meet growing consumer demand for these popular appliances," said David L. Swift, president of Whirlpool North America. "This investment also will help us drive improved productivity and efficiency, and support the continuing efforts of our brands to deliver a constant stream of innovation to consumers."

Whirlpool said it will begin hiring this summer.

The facility in Amana, Iowa, was acquired by Maytag along with the rest of the Amana Appliances business in 2001. Maytag was acquired by Whirlpool on March 31 of this year.
