Q:

Where are Frigidaire appliances made?

A:

Frigidaire appliances are manufactured in the United States and Mexico. Frigidaire, originally named Guardian Frigerator Company, was formerly based in Fort Wayne, Ind. The Guardian Frigerator Company produced the first electric refrigerator and remained in business for 2 years before changing its name to Frigidaire in 1919.

The invention of the refrigerator by Nathaniel B. Wales and Alfred Mellowes in 1916 was capitalized on by one of General Motors founders, William C. Durant. The company's name grew so popular that it became synonymous to any brand of refrigerator. Frigidaire was owned by several companies including Delco-Light and White Sewing Machine Company. It is currently headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., and is a division of Electrolux.
