Whirlpool Corp. will lay off 700 workers at its manufacturing facility in Fort Smith, AR, U.S., beginning in November, citing soft consumer demand and higher costs.

"Like many manufacturers, we are facing a marketplace filled with unprecedented challenges, including lower demand levels, significant and unrelenting increases in the costs of steel, oil, and other materials used to make and deliver our products," Alan Holaday, Whirlpool's North America vice president for Manufacturing Operations, said in a statement.

The company also recently announced a voluntary layoff of 120 employees at its Evansville, IN manufacturing facility.
