Whirlpool brand, renowned for their dedication to innovation to improve the lives of consumers, was honoured at the recent CES show in Las Vegas.
The brand hauled away nine innovation awards in four categories: Tech for a Better World, Eco-Design and Sustainable Technologies, Smart Home, and Home Appliances.
CES Innovation Awards recognise outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics, and entries are judged by a distinguished panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade press. Entries are judged on their engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities and, in some categories, how it can make a positive impact to the quality of life for its users.
Whirlpool invests heavily in creating products that allow consumers to make the most of their time, and be free to live their lives, and constantly drives innovation in every product category to find ways of improving people’s lives.
Jennifer Spragg, Senior Brand Manager, Whirlpool, says: “We are thrilled that Whirlpool brand has been recognised in this way, and are truly honoured to have been selected to receive nine awards for innovation. Whirlpool has been at the cutting edge of technological advances, designing appliances with a view to improving the daily lives of consumers, for over a century, and this prestigious acknowledgement from the industry is testament to our commitment to innovation.
“With our newest innovation, the 6th Sense Live® washing machine and tumble dryer that communicate with each other, and can be controlled using an app on your smartphone or tablet, we are constantly looking at ways to provide our customers with an effortless, intuitive and efficient experience in the home.”
