(Pleasant Prairie, WI)  —  The home appliance-making giant Whirlpool has bought a Wisconsin based company, InSinkErator for three-billion dollars. 

InSinkErator is owned by Emerson and is based in Pleasant Prairie.  It is the world’s largest manufacturer of sink disposals and on-demand hot water dispensers, controlling more than 70-percent of the market.

  Whirlpool says it plans to keep the production in Wisconsin.  Media reports call it an all-cash transaction that should close in the fourth quarter.
