The sale if the Italian appliance giant Indesit to the US owned Whirlpool, took place in July 2014, bring the ownership of the Italian Merloni family to an end. The Merloni family first started the Indesit company back in 1930 and over the years have aquired many other domestic appliance brands along the way, most notable are Hotpoint and Creda.
Whirlpool bought the Merloni families 60% shares in the business for close to $1 billion. It is thought that the acquisition of Indesit will bring Whirlpool a larger interest in the European market. After acquiring the Maytag Corporation on March 31, 2006, the Whirlpool Corporation surpassed Electrolux to become “the largest home appliance maker in the world.”
It is still unsure what will become of the Hotpoint and Indesit brands in the UK and we wait with baited breath to see if this means the end for the two hallmark appliance names.
