Dishwashers are a common appliance found in most homes, and for some consumers, purchasing a Canadian-made dishwasher is an important factor to consider. In this article, I will be seeing if there are any companies that manufacture dishwashers in Canada.
Are There Any Companies That Sell Dishwashers in Canada? (The Short Answer)
After plenty of internet sleuthing, I couldn’t find a single brand that definitely manufactures dishwashers in Canada. However, I did find a couple of companies that might offer some Canadian made dishwashers.
Possible Dishwashers Made in Canada (What I found)
As mentioned above, I couldn’t find any companies that definitely manufacture dishwashers in Canada. I did find a couple that might manufacture some dishwashers in Canada. Here’s what I found.
Danby was founded in 1947. It was founded in Montreal, Quebec and it started by producing hot plates and slow cookers. As time went on, Danby started to expand its product range and opened up more manufacturing facilities.
Danby has manufacturing facilities in Canada, the UK, North America, Mexico, and various other locations like China. This makes it very hard to find out which specific product is made where.
I couldn’t find anything on the company’s official site stating which of its products are made in Canada. So, while the company does manufacture some of its products in Canada, it is unclear which specific products are made there.
I’d recommend reaching out to the company directly before committing to a purchase to ensure that the model you are interested in is one that’s made in Canada. Here’s a link to its dishwasher product page, and here’s a link to the company’s contact page.
Inglis (Now Owned By Whirlpool)
Inglis was a company that used to manufacture some of its dishwashers in Canada. But, in 1987 the company was purchased by the Whirlpool Corporation, which then changed the company’s name from Inglis to Whirlpool in 2001.
Fortunately for those consumers out there who own an Inglis dishwasher, Whirlpool has a section on its website dedicated to parts and manuals for old Inglis models.
As for Whirlpools’ dishwasher manufacturing, it takes place in several different locations across the US and Canada. The company may also manufacture its products in other countries too, but as far as dishwashers go, it looks like they are mainly made in the US, with a few possibly being made in Canada.
According to Whirlpool’s website, its Canadian headquarters is located in Ontario. While it doesn’t state specifically that manufacturing takes place at this location, I came across a few third-party articles that mentioned this facility as being an active manufacturing plant.
If there are any readers out there who have any more information regarding Whirlpool’s manufacturing leave a comment below as we like to keep our articles up-to-date and accurate.
