Whirlpool

Whirlpool are a brand that has been growing since 1911. Starting out in America, Louis Upton acquired a patent for a manual clothes washer and approached his uncle Emory Upton, who owned a machine shop, to see if it would be possible to add a motor to the design. Over the years they joined with companies, and acquired others.

In 1966 they became Whirlpool, and they have brands such as Indesit, Hotpoint and KitchenAid among others.

In 1968 they developed freeze dried ice cream for the Apollo missions under contract from N.A.S.A
