24/7 Wall St.: 10 Surprising Products Still Made in America

6. KitchenAid Mixer

Parent company: Whirlpool Corp.
Headquarters: Benton Charter Township, Mich.

Appliance maker KitchenAid still makes many of its products in the U.S. — notably, its highly popular mixer is made at a plant in Greenville, Ohio. This is despite large appliance makers having moved manufacturing mostly outside of the U.S. and into emerging markets such as China, India and Latin America. It is important to note that Whirlpool, the makers of KitchenAid, hasn’t exactly shunned the globalization trend. In October, the company announced plans to cut 5,000 jobs, many of those in North America. The cuts include a plant closing in Fort Smith, Ark. Still, the company hasn’t shown any signs of abandoning the manufacturing of the mixer in Ohio anytime soon.
