Fisher & Paykel Appliances (F&P) has chosen Clyde, Ohio as the site for its new U.S. washing machine manufacturing facility.

As reported on July 6 by APPLIANCE magazine, Auckland, New Zealand-based F&P planned to relocate production of Smart Drive(R) clothes washers from Cleveland, Australia, as well as moving motor manufacturing from Auckland, to the U.S.

"Clyde is central to our major customers in the USA," said John Bongard, CEO and managing director. "Our motives for moving to an American location were to reduce costs of production, freight and working capital associated with supplying that market, and this can be achieved by being in Ohio."

Clyde also offers a good infrastructure with a number of companies capable of supporting the production of washing machines and motors that will be manufactured on the site. The plant is expected to be operational by the end of the current fiscal year.

Clyde is also home to an extensive Whirlpool Corporation washing machine manufacturing facility.
