Electrolux: The Company Behind the Refrigerator Freezer Brand

The Electrolux Group, often simply called Electrolux for short, is a Swedish appliance maker who specializes in home appliances for the average home and consumer. As of 2010, they were also considered the second largest appliance maker in the world, coming in behind only Whirlpool. This impressive fact only begins to scratch the surface of why Electrolux fridges and freezers have been so highly thought of by consumers. If you haven’t heard of this company, there’s a good chance it’s because they not only sell appliances under the Electrolux name, but this group also owns dozens of other brand names which they sell various appliances and products under.
While many people may think of vacuum cleaners, washers and dryers, or dishwashers when they think of the Electrolux, the history of this company making refrigeration units goes way back, all the way to 1925 when they produced their very first refrigerator. Currently, the company boasts of over 52,000 employees and making sales in the billions of dollars. While recent news stories on the company seem to pay attention to their “robotic vacuums,” there’s little doubt by the sales numbers that Electrolux freezers are selling just fine with or without any extra media attention.
In modern markets the specific Electrolux line of fridges and freezers focuses on the extremely high quality appliances which can be used either commercially or for an out of the world home set up. Don’t expect to find a refrigerator freezer from this manufacturer for less than $2,000 and many models go for as high as $5,000. These are extremely high quality, but you are going to have to pay for it.
Currently there are 17 models of refrigerators which are directly available from Electrolux, but the consumer has the option of minor customization on each one. All these models are available with 23 cubic feet or 28 cubic feet, with a choice between the trademarked Wave-Touch or IQ-Touch control panel. In addition, almost all of the full sized refrigerators come in three different colors or shades: white, black, and stainless steel. These options allow for a wide selection when it comes to Electrolux fridges. In addition, this company offers full sized refrigerators in French door style, side-by-side door style, or even one “built in all” model.
While they may not have started out with the intention of becoming one of the premiere high end names in refrigerators and freezers, it makes sense that a company so devoted to producing other household and kitchen appliances would naturally also make the transition to also take care of a family’s refrigeration and freezing needs.
The Electrolux fridge line isn’t for consumers on a budget but there’s little denying that between the options, quality of construction, and reputation for making great products that they are going to continue to give Maytag a run for their money. This company’s long history of creating various Electrolux appliances shows a constant theme of high quality and as long as the future continues that trend these will continue to be some of the best selling fridge freezers around.
