Westinghouse Electric began manufacturing and retailing major appliances when it acquired Copeman Electric Stove Company in 1917. It began manufacturing refrigerators in the 1950s and claims to have introduced the first automatic defrost system. In 1975, its appliance manufacturing division was acquired by White Consolidated Industries, creating White-Westinghouse. This company was acquired in 1986 by Swedish appliance manufacturer AB Electrolux, which maintains manufacturing rights as a brand licensee.

AB Electrolux periodically manufactures White-Westinghouse appliances, with the latest production run taking place in 2006. The Westinghouse Licensing Company licenses AB Electrolux to manufacture the White-Westinghouse brand of refrigerators, but only in Australia.
