Three generations of Farringtons have worked for appliance maker
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.
BENTON TOWNSHIP — Trianna Sims is rarely speechless, but Thursday wasn’t like most days for her.
Alongside her husband, Dontrell, the Sims were given a ceremonial hammer Thursday morning at the site of their future Benton Township house being built by them and Harbor Habitat of Humanity volunteers.
Dontrell explained how much a home meant for him and his family. The Sims have moved three times within the past year, while tending to a 2-year-old boy, with another child on the way.
Transitioning to clean energy is one of the most efficient ways for companies to mitigate their environmental impact, as it prevents GHG emissions as well as providing a long-term solution for energy needs.
For that reason, appliance manufacturer Whirlpool Corporation is pushing ahead with wind energy expansion as part of its efforts to decrease its carbon footprint in a bid to make its business increasingly sustainable as well as more socially responsible.
When it comes to sustainability, dreaming bigger is always better. By looking beyond regulatory requirements to achieve sustainable practices, Whirlpool Corporation is recognizing the value in protecting consumer health and trade customer priorities, as well as reduced eco-fees.
