The new logo reinforces the idea of being intrinsically simple yet modern and elegant. It is designed to showcase what Whirlpool delivers – appliances that boast of quality, integrity and innovation.

The ring strengthens Whirlpool’s promise to every customer, which is to provide the best branded consumer product, in every home around the world.
The new logo further depicts company’s focused approach to capture market space by expanding their product range across categories in the Indian consumer durable industry. The font in the logo has also been changed to give more dimensions.
Sharing his views on the transformation, Mr. Sunil D’Souza, Managing Director, Whirlpool of India said, “The evolution of Whirlpool’s logo signifies change in brand’s attitude by showcasing itself as a progressive, powerful and an innovative company which aims to capture every Indian household. The organization’s motto has been kept at the heart of the change along with a focus on growth and expansion into a wider product portfolio”.
