Whirlpool – The Carinaro factory becomes a logistics base for spare parts

The production plant in Carinaro (in the province of Caserta) – destined to be closed after the merger of Indesit in Whirlpool – has actually been converted into the largest logistics base for spare parts for the appliance company.

According to Il Sole 24 Ore : “On 60 thousand square meters of covered area (like seven football fields), the logistics platform manages 100 thousand different components, has a stock of 90 million euros, handles 3 thousand packages and pallets a day and It serves as many customers in the world, shipments for 12 million a year

The investment has penalized the employees who have become 320 from 800, even if the company has declared to want to focus on the workers, convinced that in the logistics the human control is still synonymous of guarantee of quality
