Press Releases

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement on the news of the future of the Fort Smith Whirlpool plant: 

“This announcement is disappointing news for employees, the community and local businesses that have developed a strong working relationship with Whirlpool. The Congressional delegation, the Governor and local officials have been actively working to maintain this Fort Smith facility. We have gone to great lengths to try to meet the requests of the company and identify how we can continue to make this location a good business decision for Whirlpool. I am frustrated by this outcome.”
