Whirlpool said today it will expand its national parts distribution and operations center in Plainfield, IN, US creating more than 150 new jobs.

The company currently employs more than 400 people at the 805,000-square-foot facility owned by Ryder. Hiring will begin later this year and continue through 2008.

The expansion follows Whirlpool’s acquisition of Maytag in 2006 and the consolidation of the two companies’ North American parts operations.

“Expanding the Plainfield operations will allow us to move our products more efficiently and more cost effectively,” said Whirlpool’s Kathy Nelson, vice president and general manager for consumer and appliance care, in a statement.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Whirlpool and Ryder up to $780,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $57,000 in training grants based on Whirlpool’s announced job creation plans. The Town of Plainfield also offered property tax abatement. (Indystar.com)
