TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Whirlpool Corp. has announced plans for a $55 million expansion that will bring about 150 more jobs to Oklahoma.
The home appliance company says in a news release Tuesday that it will build a distribution center adjacent to an existing manufacturing plant in Tulsa. Construction on the 798,000 square-foot facility is scheduled to start in November with a complete date of December 2019.
