In honor of National Manufacturing Day, Whirlpool Corporation is marking the occasion with the continuation of its global photojournalism project, “Places That Matter.” The project features a series of videos that chronicle the stories of the communities around the world where Whirlpool Corporation’s appliances are made, and the people who make them. The video series is part of Whirlpool’s celebration of manufacturing during the month of October that aims to inspire the next generation of manufacturing innovation.
Whirlpool Corporation has many employees across the globe who have chosen to make manufacturing a long-term career. Maggie Hammaker is one of those individuals. Starting out at age 19 on the assembly line in Greenville, Ohio at the KitchenAid plant, she was a motor builder for the classic stand mixer. From there, she eventually worked her way up to a position overseeing all of the classic stand mixer assembly lines—eight of them in all—by the age of 29.
She credits her success not only to hard work and perseverance, but to the mentorship and leadership she’s had access to, as well as the educational opportunities made available through Whirlpool Corporation’s tuition reimbursement program, and the experience she’s been given through her work in multiple roles at the plant over the course of the last 10 years.
You can see and experience her entire story in this “Day in the Life” video, produced to celebrate Manufacturing Day 2019.
