BENTON HARBOR, Mich., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Whirlpool Corporation, the world's leading manufacturer of major home appliances, will introduce several innovative new products to the builder industry at the PCBC conference June 28 – 29 in San Diego.
"Purposeful innovation is a core competency at Whirlpool Corporation," said Bob Bergeth, general manager of Contract Builder Sales at Whirlpool Corporation. "We're proud to showcase our culture of innovation at PCBC by introducing products that will transform the way consumers cook and clean. Show attendees will also have the opportunity to meet a few of the creative minds that developed these products."
Featured products at the Whirlpool Corporation booth (#2012) include:
The Whirlpool® Sunset Bronze Kitchen Suite, bringing to market a breakthrough, warm-tone, painted stainless steel suite. The new line pushes design standards, achieving a timeless and approachable finish that fits any kitchen aesthetic – new or existing. The color, which is achieved by color blocking painted stainless steel, is a perfect blend of gold, copper and bronze tones. The new collection is also fingerprint-resistant, so families can enjoy this versatile new finish that also reduces the visibility of pesky smudges. The Sunset Bronze Kitchen Suite is expected to be in-market this fall.
Sunset Bronze isn't the only new color finish making its debut at PCBC. Builders can also experience the Whirlpool® Fingerprint Resistant Black Stainless Steel Kitchen Suite at the show. The fingerprint resistant matte black finish is designed to create a space that reflects personal taste, hides fingerprints, smudges and daily wear and easily wipes clean. The rich metallic black in a soft, brushed, matte finish allows for a neutral canvas in the most important room in the house.
"We're blurring the line between furniture and machine in our designs," said Jason Tippetts, Global Brands Design Manager at Whirlpool Corporation. "Satin and matte finishes help builders blend with other materials in the kitchen, creating continuity from surface to surface. This is especially important because the kitchen has integrated into families' living spaces and is truly the hub of the home."
Other featured Whirlpool Corporation products on display at the show include:
The award-winning Whirlpool® Fingerprint Resistant Smart Kitchen Suite, featuring Scan-to-Cook and Assisted Cooking technology. The suite, which received both a 2017 CES Innovation Award as well as a 2017 PCBC Parade of Products (POP @ PCBC) award, also allows remote control of the refrigerator, dishwasher and range via the Whirlpool® mobile app1.
Members of the Whirlpool Corporation Global Design and Connectivity teams will be in attendance at the show to discuss the latest trends in design and connectivity and more importantly, how builders can learn more about appliances that solve consumers' problems with exceptional design and purposeful technology.
