Maytag Commercial Laundry® Moves Front-Load Washer Production from Mexico to the United States 

St. Joseph, Mich., (Dec. 23, 2013) – Maytag Commercial Laundry® is moving the production line of its front-load single-load washers from Monterrey, Mexico, to Clyde, Ohio. The move is a part of a larger investment to continually advance the commercial front-load washer platform, which is due to begin production in the Ohio-based facility in April.

Approximately 80 to 100 new jobs will be created in Clyde during the next three years to support this manufacturing relocation. The relocation will increase operational efficiencies and align with the company’s strategy of building products in the regions where they are primarily sold.

The 2.4 million square foot manufacturing plant in Clyde is the largest washing machine plant in the world.

“The company’s move to the world-class facility in Clyde represents a significant commitment to the commercial laundry industry. These front-load washers are engineered to meet the rigorous demands of the commercial laundry market,” said Bob English, general manager at Maytag Commercial Laundry®. “We look forward to ramping up production and continuing to build this quality product in Clyde, for the United States and abroad.”
