Our Industry Firsts Come From Putting People First

We never let our passion for helping create today’s special moments distract us from empowering even more purposeful innovations. We understand that innovation takes its first step backward when it stops moving forward. That’s why we’ll never stop pursuing new products that resonate with the people who use them. We work tirelessly to create exceptional design and purposeful technology that blends into the home rather than stands out in a house. 

For more than a century, we’ve been innovating and implementing designs that free up more time for what’s important. From the first washing machine to the first stand mixer to the first laundry pair with steam cycles, innovation is second nature to us and essential to our passion. We’re extremely proud of our history of innovation, but we believe our greatest accomplishments are yet to come.
