Electrolux is a Swedish multinational home appliance manufacturer, headquartered in Stockholm. It is consistently ranked the world’s second-largest appliance maker by units sold after Whirlpool. The company has 11 percent market share in India and enjoys good sales all around the year. As a brand, Electrolux is closely tied to vacuum cleaners, but today the company manufactures major household appliances like refrigerators, air conditioners, ovens, dishwasher, etc.
Electrolux, as far as we know, has got no investments or dependence on China for its production needs. The company has its own manufacturing plants in India, where it produces goods that are primarily sold to Indian consumers.
