Appliance retailer Lowe's Companies, Inc. chose Whirlpool Corporation as its "Appliance Vendor of the Year."

"We selected Whirlpool for this honor based on its record of on-time shipments and innovative product offerings," said John Kasberger, Lowe's senior vice president and general merchandising manager, Hardlines.

Kasberger specifically cited Whirlpool brand's innovative Fast Fill water dispensing and filtration system, available on select Whirlpool Gold refrigerators. The feature is said to fill any size container twice as fast as previous dispensers, and its 50-percent larger housing easily accommodates both large and small containers.

"This is another example of how employees at Whirlpool continue to put our customers at the center of all we do," said Tom Ellspermann, general manager for the Lowe's account at Whirlpool. "We are honored by this distinction, which grows out of the relationship between Lowe's and Whirlpool that spans more than 30 years."
