The Whirlpool Family
By Tony Wittkowski
BENTON HARBOR — Eric and Mike Farrington have an easy time running through their family’s lineage.
To do so is effortless because a good portion of it can be found at Whirlpool Corp.
The Farrington clan has seen the home appliance maker grow and extend its reach across the world in a manner of decades. In Whirlpool’s 106 years of existence – dating to when it was the Upton Machine Co. – there has been a Farrington working there for the last 71 years.
As of 2017, the Farringtons have collectively spent more than a century at Whirlpool.
