Over the years most of the small manufactures of home appliances have been bought up by the major ones. Now several major company’s own all the smaller brand names.
For instance brand names such as Glenwood, Litton, May Tag, Imperial, Sunray, Viking and Speed Queen are all under the distributor Amana (now owned by Whirlpool).
Americana is under the distributorship of General Electric. This is not to say Americana products are made by them, they are just the distributors of that particular brand.
In fact a brand is a name or term that distinguishes a product or organization from it’s competition. The Term, brand is used in marketing, advertising and business.
Every year manufactures produce all manner of appliances from small to large and each year new models and styles are created for the retail market.
So there is a constant influx of changes and adjustments to their products. Along with changing styles comes the addition of color, making it easier to fit your homes decor.
